    Erik ten Hag insists Marcus Rashford knows exactly what he needs to do to get back into the Manchester United side.

    And the United boss believes Rashford can learn from the likes of Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay who have dug in to get back in his side. Rashford, 26, was dropped for United’s 2-1 win over Chelsea on Wednesday night with Alejandro Garnacho starring on the left week and even Antony impressing on the right.

    That came after the England man’s limp display against Newcastle last weekend in a dire performance by United. Ten Hag said: “So Rashford is an incredible, good player.

    “You can't do it with 11 players. He can't play every game, he's not in this moment in the form he was last year but I am sure he will get there.

    “What I said about Scott McTominay and Harry Maguire: it is up to them. The team will always line themselves up and the best players who form the best team will play.”

    Rashford has managed just two goals so far this season – one from open play – which is in stark contrast to his riveting form of last term when he netted 30 times for his club. But United’s win over Chelsea has Ten Hag thinking his side are finding better form after a shocking start to the season left them out of the title race and on the brink of a Champions League exit.

    He added: “So we know where we are going and we had our setbacks, especially at the start of the season, things went against us with injuries, decisions and sometimes you find yourselves in such a place. You see the character of the team, we're in a better place, better form.

    “The performances are increasing, we are performing as a team and as individuals, you have to be sharp in every game, this league is very competitive and you see it in results this week. Everyone kills everyone.”
