Manchester United goalscorer Marcus Rashford was delighted with victory over Chelsea.
Rashford gave United a dream start when he latched onto Ander Herrera’s through-ball and slotted past Asmir Begovic in the seventh minute, before Herrera doubled the Reds’ advantage with a deflected shot just after half-time.
He said: “We went there earlier in the season in the cup and we had a gameplan. We were unfortunate to go down to 10 men but we kept working and sticking at it.
“Here today, it took a lot of discipline to carry out the same actions and get the result, but we all stuck at it and thankfully we got the goals.”
Rashford came in for top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic in attack and put in an excellent performance, but the striker insisted it was solely a team effort.
The 19-year-old said: “It’s not so much stepping up to the plate [in Zlatan’s absence] because we’re a team and missing one player doesn’t cancel out everything we’ve worked on throughout the week. Everyone grafts together and puts in the work to get the result.”
The win stretched United’s unbeaten run in the league to 22 matches and, with the side still battling for the top four and progressing in the Europa League, Rashford stressed the importance of keeping up the good performances.
“To be honest, I am not paying much attention to the other teams,” the England man told MUTV. “At this stage of the season, if we win all our games then we are going to find ourselves in the top four and that is how we have to approach the games.
“From now, we have to kick on even more. Every game is going to get more and more difficult; other teams are going to want it more and we will want it more, so we just have to go and get the results.”
The home fans created an electrifying atmosphere throughout the game and Rashford added: “It is easy to create that atmosphere today: it was a big game, we got an early goal and that makes a difference. But it is always a good atmosphere here. They have to keep pushing us and we have to keep pushing them.”
