Marcus Rashford reacts to last-gasp Man United win vs. West Ham

Manchester United scored a 93rd-minute goal to beat fellow top-four challengers West Ham during Saturday’s Premier League match at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils began the game somewhat off the pace with neither side really doing enough to open the scoring.

However, with the match heading for the final whistle, substitute Marcus Rashford, who came on with half-an-hour to play, was able to tap home a very late winner following some link-up play between Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial.

Following what is a massive game in the hunt for top-tier European football next season, Saturday’s goalscoring hero, who spoke to BBC Sport, said: “It is obviously an important goal and such late on is an amazing feeling. We have to use that winning feeling. We could have been a bit better on the ball but managed to get the goal we needed and can use that as motivation now.

“When there are two teams so close together in the table, both are fighting to be in front of one another and today we managed to get there. We are sitting fourth now, some teams have games to play, but it is nice to be in that position.

“The wins are what’s important, when you get wins, consecutive wins, you can really start to go on a run and that is what gives everyone confidence.

“We have had a difficult week, there have been many games in one week, so the break is needed. It’ll be good for us.”
