Manchester United returned to action after the World Cup break with a 2-0 win over Burnley.


Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford expressed his delight after returning to scoring ways at Old Trafford.


The England international lit up Old Trafford on Wednesday night as he scored a brilliant solo effort against Burnley after Christian Eriksen had already broken the deadlock, finishing off Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s assist in the first half.




The 2-0 win over Vincent Kompany’s Clarets, means Erik Ten Hag’s Red Devils now have a quarter-final clash against Charlton in the EFL Cup. 


'It is good to play again.'


Rashford was eventually named the player of the match following his display and after the match, he told Sky Sports about his return from England's disappointing World Cup quarter-final exit: "It is good to play again but it was a tough game and it was good to get a win to take into the next game.



"[The World Cup loss affects you] more emotions-wise because it was such a disappointing feeling to be knocked out and you have to pick yourselves up.


"There is no time to feel sorry for yourself. You need to pick up results and thankfully we did that today.



'Waiting for the right time.'


Asked about his solo goal against Burnley, he said: "There is space in front of you and you're almost waiting for the right time to get a pass off but the gap opened and thankfully it went in."



He also gave his thoughts on United’s chances of winning the EFL Cup.


"Massively. We are in every tournament to try and win it. This is definitely a good one to win. Winning this trophy early in the season in February - can push you on to achieve more in the season."



When asked about the team goal which ended in Christian Eriksen's goal, Rashford added: "I thought it was a great goal and the timing of the movements was fantastic. It almost looks like a simple goal but it was like clockwork.”
