Marcus Rashford dreaming of Old Trafford goal in the Manchester derby

by Sam Peoples

Marcus Rashford is desperate to score for Manchester United against City in the derby at Old Trafford having tasted the bedlam after scoring away at the Etihad.

Marcus, 19, scored Man United’s solitary goal last season in a 1-0 win over City with a goal that sent the away fans wild but Rashford wants to know what that feels like to score it in front of 70,000+ United fans at Old Trafford.

Asked to name his dream goal by Inside United, Rashford said: “It would be a home goal against City, definitely! Scoring away was a massive moment as well for me, so I can only imagine what a home goal would be like.

“We were attacking and then they were attacking. They had a bit more of the ball but they weren’t really threatening us. There were two times before when I got on a one-v-one with him [Martin Demichelis] and he just nicked the ball off me. I knew what I needed to do the next time I got the ball so I did it.

“Then I was against the keeper [Joe Hart] and it was just about relaxing, composing myself and that was what I did. After it went in, the fans were too far away but it was a good feeling with everyone coming towards you. To win the game 1-0 as well, to hold out as a team was a good feeling.”

Rashford continued this season in superb form but having been stationed out on the right-wing, more often than not operating as a right wing-back, his goal threat has been lessened. United fans are keen to see that change and Rashford to be given a more central role.

Jose Mourinho has a tough task balancing his squad and keeping players happy this season but our attack is currently completely out of form, so something has to change and bringing pushing Rashford up front again could be the solution we desperately need.
