Video: Marcus Rashford has perfect mentality ahead of crucial Newcastle clash

Marcus Rashford has been discussing the importance of bouncing back as Manchester United take on Newcastle at St James’ Park. 

United’s humiliating 6-1 defeat to Tottenham before the international break would have hurt Rashford and his teammates, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must elicit a positive reaction from his squad this evening.

Rashford believes this fixture holds heightened importance after the Spurs defeat at Old Trafford and wants to secure victory in a way he can be proud of.

The 22-year-old is a credit to the club and was recently awarded an MBE for his efforts to help vulnerable children during the covid-19 pandemic.

But his focus will be firmly fixed on kickstarting his season with an impressive performance in a new look United attack.

Solskjaer is without preferred centre-forwards Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial for the fixture, so could line-up with an unfamiliar front three of Rashford, Juan Mata and Mason Greenwood.
