Man Utd collapse should not ‘define the season’: Rashford


Marcus Rashford said that on Monday Manchester United they should not let their 7-0 Premier League run be destroyed by Liverpool to define their season and urge his team to “stick together”.

A week after winning the League Cup to end a six-year wait for silverware, United head to Merseyside on Sunday full of confidence and not talking about a quadruple sign.

But their faint hopes of the Premier League were dashed by the destruction at Anfield, which met with their heaviest defeat.

Manager Erik ten Hag called the game, in which United scored six goals in a dramatic second-half display, “unspecial”.

RashfordUnited’s top scorer this season said he was desperate to get back on the pitch to put the result behind them.

“I wish we could play today to try to make things right,” tweeted the 25-year-old. “The result is the result, and we can’t see that!

“We shouldn’t let it define our season. We have to trust the process and stick together.”

Goalkeeper David de Gea called the result a “tragedy”, encouraging the players to look ahead, and a Europa League match against Real Betis is coming up on Thursday.

“This is a bad time for us and these results should not happen, especially in the journey we are all on,” he tweeted.

“We have a responsibility to this club, a responsibility to represent the medal, but we have many opportunities to look ahead, many games are coming soon and we have to lock our focus on these things.”

England defender Luke Shaw said the performance was “unacceptable” and “disgraceful” and apologized to the club.

He said he felt standards had fallen in the days since United won the League Cup at Wembley by beating Newcastle in the final.

“We have to find the good things we did before and bring them back because it hurts a lot,” he told MUTV.

“It was unacceptable what we did in the second half and the mistakes.

“We didn’t show any attitude, no mentality and for a big team to come here we have to be good.”

The 27-year-old added: “We can’t let this one result disrupt our whole season because I think we’re in a very good place.”
