Manchester United's star player Marcus Rashford's recent performance in the Premier League defeat against Newcastle United has raised eyebrows. Rashford, who was the top scorer last season with 30 goals, has managed to find the net only twice this season. His effort and body language during the match have sparked concerns about his form.
Manager Demurs on Rashford's Form
When asked about Rashford's form, Manchester United's manager Erik ten Hag declined to discuss the matter with the media. "I will talk to him and not the media,” Ten Hag said tersely. “I don't go into individual performances. I knew this issue was coming up and Marcus is investing a lot. He will return to his form, he will recover and he gets all our support.”
Newcastle's Victory Led by Anthony Gordon
The victory for Newcastle was led by Anthony Gordon's 55th-minute goal. This win moved the team above Manchester United in the league table. Newcastle's manager, Eddie Howe, praised Gordon's performance and hinted at a potential England call-up for the player.
Marred by Injury
However, the victory for Newcastle was marred by an injury to Nick Pope. The player suffered a dislocated shoulder during the match, which may affect the team's future performances.
Despite the defeat, the Manchester United management has expressed confidence in Rashford's ability to regain form with the team's support. However, Rashford's form remains a matter of concern for fans and critics alike.
