Marcus Rashford explains how Daniel James partnership can spark Man Utd revival


The pair combined for an electrifying counter attack which helped end Liverpool’s 17 match unbeaten run on Sunday.

It was Marcus Rashford’s first goal for United since the middle of last month and only his fourth Premier League goal of the campaign.

But the striker, who was also on the mark for England at the start of last week, says he hopes that duo can kick on starting in Belgrade on Thursday.

“It was a good goal but we definitely want more,” said the England forward.

“We had a bit of eye contact before so probably without looking at each other and getting that little connection we wouldn’t have to the goal.

“Instead you’d miss which has happened a lot in the past.”

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has called on his side to be more ruthless in front of goal as the season progresses.

And Rashford insists the message is getting through despite their inability to add to his opener and put the game to bed on Sunday.

“We’ve just got to be more positive – at 1-0 or 2-0 up, we need to be more positive,” he said.

Rashford is looking to keep his streak going against Partizan Belgrade in United’s Europa League away in Thursday’s late afternoon kick off in the Serbian capital.

“We’ll try and get a win mid-week and hopefully we can kick on,” he said.
