Marcus Rashford was happy his goal helped Manchester United seal a narrow win over Leicester City on Sunday and after the match the England international admitted he’s happy to be an all-round forward.

The United academy graduate, who made his 100th Premier League appearance for the club, is experiencing playing in a variety of attacking positions (on the left, down the middle and on the right flank) as he believes he is on he right track.

“I don't think anyone grows up wanting to just be a striker nowadays,” said the Reds' no.10 as manutd.com quoted. “I think the game's changed. You want to be an all-round forward and you want to be able to play on the left, play on the right, play no.10, play wherever the team needs you, and I think what's happened in my career so far has enabled me to do that so I'm grateful.

”[It] was a different kind of game,” Rashford said of the win at Leicester. ”I think it had different challenges but you know it's very difficult, so to get the win is very good.

“It [the winning feeling] has huge importance, but for us we're looking at blocks of work and we just keep trying to improve ourselves. The last result [against Burnley] wasn't what we wanted, so we had to improve and we did that today.”
