Marcus Rashford still hopes Man Utd can finish in the top four this season.
Manchester United have had a pretty poor start to the season so far and last weekend’s defeat against Bournemouth has seen Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side drop to 10th in the league table — currently 10 points adrift of Chelsea in 4th.
However, the United striker feels that finishing in the top four remains an achievable target this season.
Rashford told Sky Sports: “It’s going to be tough [to get into the top four] but it’s nowhere near impossible.
“We don’t need to focus on any other teams, we play our best football when we focus on ourselves and us improving. That’s the only way Man Utd play good football and we need to get back to doing that. It can be very simple for us and at the same time, you don’t want to make it complicated for yourself.”
Rashford’s form improved with the return of Anthony Martial, who was absent for eight-weeks through injury.
As a fan, it’s difficult to come to terms with how our expectations seem to lower year after year.
Things aren’t getting better. You look at the job Brendan Rodgers is doing at Leicester — with less money and less ‘stars’ — without the need of excuses.
It doesn’t help that Solskjaer is on a totally different page as the owners and Ed Woodward. The Norwegian — like us fans — wants United delivering on the pitch again. The suits only want commercial gain.
Champions League qualification is doubtful, but certainly not impossible.
