Marcus Rashford pinpoints where Manchester United went wrong against Liverpool FC
Marcus Rashford believes Manchester United need to start killing games off when they’re on top if they are to transform their poor run of form.
Adam Lallana netted a valuable equaliser for Jurgen Klopp’s side late on in the match, but Rashford believes his side had done enough to win the match over the weekend.
Speaking after the game, Rashford revealed how he sensed an equaliser was more likely for Liverpool once his side dropped deeper, and in particular when United stopped playing balls in behind the opposition defence.
“Of course the second goal would have made the game a lot more simple for us. It didn’t come,” Rashford told MUTV.
“For me, I’d say that twenty minutes before they scored the goal you can see we stopped playing passes in behind, and I always say that when we stop doing that it puts more pressure on us as a team.
“At this club where we play attacking football as soon as we take our foot off the gas a little bit it is difficult to defend against top players for large spells like we had to today, and towards the end of the game.
“So I think we just have to be more positive. 1-0, 2-0 up, we just need to be more positive and look for the next goal.”
