Marcus Rashford hopes the win against Brighton will motivate Man Utd going forward.

Man United ace Rashford says “we have to use these three points as motivation to improve and keep getting better"

Marcus Rashford has issued a rallying cry to his Manchester United teammates saying the Red Devils "have to improve" if they want to hit their targets for the 2020-21 campaign.

England international Rashord scored his second goal of the new campaign [his first Premier League goal] in United's 3-2 win against Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.

The 22-year-old's goal was United's 10,000th goal across all competitions since the English giants was founded back in 1878 and he wasn't aware of how important the goal was to the history of the club.

However, when told how significant his goal was, Rashford didn't pay much attention to it and insisted Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's boys need to do better going forward.

“10,000 goals? It’s funny the way it happened as well, but we have to take things in our stride," he told MUTV.

“We have to use these three points as motivation to improve and keep getting better. We have to improve if we want to hit our targets for the season.

“We had a slow start in the last league game [the 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace ] and it’s more important to pick up points. It’s more important that we lost the first league game, we had to win today.

“It doesn’t matter how we won, we got the three points and we’ll move forward and improve.”

He added: “It’s probably the craziest game [the match against the Seagulls] we’ve been involved in.

“They were hitting the post, the crossbar, four or five times. [There was] VAR for the penalties too, and obviously our penalty at the end.

“We were definitely lucky to get the three points but, even when they equalised, we showed a lot of character and desire to keep pushing forward. We forced a corner out of nothing, a throw-in on the left-side.

“It was Harry [Maguire’s] determination to win the ball, he won the penalty for us and Bruno tucked it away.”
