Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata has hailed the new season form of Marcus Rashford.
Rashford has five goals of his own this term, but it was the role of provider in which he excelled against Crystal Palace on Saturday, helping inspire United to another convincing win that kept them level on points at the top of the table with local rivals Manchester City.
The United striker has had a hand in nine goals in his past 10 games in all competitions and headed off to England duty with a ringing endorsement from team-mate Juan Mata.
“I think he’s been brilliant,” said Mata, who scored United’s opener from Rashford’s cross to condemn bottom club Palace to a seventh straight Premier League defeat.
“I think he’s a special kid. I think he has a lot of talents and he’s got a good mentality, which is important at that age. He’s performing very well, week-in, week-out. Even coming from the bench he’s helping a lot. I really believe he is going to be a big player for club and country.
“It’s down to everything he does on the pitch, the qualities he has, the important player he is in some difficult games where he just takes the ball and scores two great goals, like in the League Cup.
“I see so many players at that age like this, and then they don’t keep consistency, but I believe he can because it’s down to his mentality and he has the right mentality for that.”
