Manchester United take on Liverpool at Old Trafford on Monday night and Marcus Rashford says scoring against the Scousers ‘means more’.
Both United and Liverpool are without a win so far, although Liverpool have picked up two points after drawing their first two games of the season, while United lost theirs…
However, Liverpool have a decent record against United in recent times, which is something Erik ten Hag will aim to address as manager.
Marcus Rashford is one of a few players trying to rediscover his best form under the new manager. He’s scored against Liverpool on four occasions in the Premier League, although the Red Devils won just one of those games.
”To be honest, I feel exactly the same (as in the past),” Rashford told ManUtd.com. ”Against anyone, you want to win but against your Liverpools and Manchester Citys, you want to prove why you play for Manchester United. Winning against Liverpool is the same feeling as when I was a kid.”
”Yeah, I’d probably say so,” he added, when asked whether goals against Liverpool mean more. ”After the game, you realise a goal’s a goal and you need to score them against any team.
”But the initial feeling is massive and it’s something that you crave as a player and I don’t think that ever leaves you.”
Rashford is coming off the back of a difficult 2021/22 campaign, too. He scored just four goals in 25 Premier League matches and he’s yet to score this season.
Scoring tonight would be the perfect way to get off the mark.
