MARCUS RASHFORD looks like he came back with a spring in his step after scoring for England against Bulgaria last week w88 . I saw him play against West Ham and Newcastle recently and there was a complete lack of movement in his game.

But on Sunday he was full of running and energy, giving Liverpool’s back four problems all match.
He played up front but also split the Liverpool defence with Daniel James, which allowed Andreas Pereira to come through as a No 10 at times. Rashford’s movement for the goal was superb which gave him the room for James to find him with a brilliant cross. It was exactly what a proper centre-forward should be doing.

When you’re later into your career, you realise that even if you aren’t given chances, you cannot afford to stop finding space with your movement. Rashford is playing in a very average team right now where he has to feed off scraps, so he deserved his standing ovation at the end when he was replaced by Anthony Martial.

In a column at the start of the season, I wrote that it was a massive gamble to go with Rashford, Martial and Mason Greenwood as the only strikers after Manchester United let Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez join Inter Milan w88 mobile ios .

It’s unfair to have all that pressure on Rashford, but Martial’s return from injury could now ease the burden on him for goals.

The winning run, the eight game hot streak that took them clear of the pack, is over.

Even so, this is a title-winning result.

To play so badly, to be so dysfunctional for so long and come away with a result like this is remarkable.

Lallana, sent on in place of Jordan Henderson, connected when Andy Robertson’s cross was diverted by Roberto Firmino.

It was a remarkable turnaround.

United were convinced Marcus Rashford’s 36th minute goal had been enough to win it.

Based on the level of performance, it probably was.

Wherever Pep watched this, he will have seized on the signs of fatigue, of wear and tear in this Liverpool side.

They were poor, really poor.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are supposed to be problem-solvers and yet this was a puzzling performance by the league leaders.

They are six points clear of City and yet Pep’s players will feel a lot closer to them this morning.

He will take a draw, anything to stop Liverpool steaming clear after a quarter of the season แทงบอล 1×2 w88 .

At first it looked like one of those frustrating days for Rashford.

Every time the ball fell at his feet in that opening half hour he seemed to run into trouble.

Andy Robertson whipped the ball off his toes too easily and Joel Matip made things look very easy back there indeed.

When Rashford finally wriggled clear of VVD, Andreas Pereira wasted the chance.

At least the United forward was willing.
