Marcus Rashford fires warning to Premier League title rivals Arsenal, Man City and Newcastle

Manchester United’s recent winning streak continued on Sunday at Old Trafford with a convincing 3-0 victory over Leicester City.

Marcus Rashford’s two goals on Sunday continued Manchester United’s stellar performance under Erik ten Hag.

Rashford scored twice as United easily defeated Leicester 3-0 at Old Trafford to close the gap on Premier League contenders Manchester City to three points.


Jadon Sancho scored the third goal after being added as a second-half substitute.

The results leaves the Reds just five points behind the Premier League leaders Arsenal.

With more than three months of games still to go, Rashford has formally recorded his season-high total of 24 club goals.

He has a good chance of being the first United player to surpass Robin van Persie’s 30-goal mark 10 seasons ago provided he stays injury-free.


Manchester United ace, Marcus Rashford has issued a warning to Premier League contenders Arsenal and Manchester City and claims he wants to “improve” even more ahead of Thursday night’s Europa League clash against Barcelona.

“Obviously, we are there, we are close,” Marcus Rashford told Sky Sports about United’s title credentials.

“At the same time, both teams in front of us are really good teams and they are playing good football at the minute as well.”

“It’s difficult not to keep pushing. It’s still early on in the season.”


“We’re fighting for a lot of different things and we have another big game coming up midweek to hopefully go through to the next round of the Europa League and then a massive game on the weekend for us [against Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final] so there’s always something to push [for] and look forward to.”

“I don’t feel like slowing down and always want to improve.”

After their victory over the Foxes, United has now won 15 of their 24 Premier League games this season, closing the gap on league-leading Arsenal to just five points.

After being humiliated 6-3 by Pep Guardiola’s City team at the beginning of October, Erik ten Hag’s team appeared to have no hope of competing for Premier League titles. Yet, they are presently among the form teams.
