Rashford issues rallying cry to Man Utd teammates, asking them to keep the momentum going.

Marcus Rashford has reiterated his desire to win the biggest trophies after Manchester United beat Everton 3-1 in the FA Cup at Old Trafford.

Erik ten Hag's Red Devils continued their impressive form and extended their winning run to seven games as they progressed to the fourth round of football's oldest competition.

Summer signing Antony tapped home Marcus Rashford's low cross from close range to open the scoring in the 3rd minute, but, the celebrations at the Theatre of Dreams were cut short when defender Conor Coady took advantage of David de Gea's mistake to make it 1-1.

Seven minutes into the second half, United restored their lead as Coady went from hero to villain when he put the ball into the Toffees net after a brilliant wing play by Rashford.

In stoppage time, the England international Rashford wrapped up the win from the penalty spot in stoppage time after United prodigy Alejandro Garnacho was brought down by Ben Godfrey.

Following the clash, Rashford expressed his joy at how United registered a hard-fought triumph on Friday night.

"It's always nice to go through in cup games and the FA Cup is definitely a special one to play in," the 25-year-old told ITV. "We're pleased to go through to the next round and more importantly we keep the momentum going and winning games."

"They [Everton] are under a bit of pressure but I thought they did well, they didn't panic after they conceded so early on. They got back into the game twice - one was offside - so they're still fighting for each other as a team. Hopefully, things get better for them."

When quizzed about his form which has seen him score 5 in 5, he answered: "In terms of performances, it's probably the best that I've been so I feel good on the pitch, I'm getting into positions and areas to score goals. If I keep creating chances, I feel like I'll keep scoring."

On winning a trophy, he replied: "That's the aim, that's why we do what we do and why we work so hard. We want to be in finals and the biggest games. Ultimately, we want to win silverware and a trophy. Hopefully this season we get a chance to do that."

'Rashford in a different frame of mind'

Former England and Arsenal striker Ian Wright said of Marcus Rashford's form and United under Ten Hag: "He is in a different frame of mind. The manager has come in and is playing a brand of football that suits him.

"He knows exactly what he is doing. He's had a break and he's fit. The club is starting to turn a corner in terms of where they are going. He is one of the main reasons behind what they are doing."
