Marcus Rashford makes Liverpool admission ahead of Old Trafford showdown
He believes playing against the Reds is a platform for the players to prove themselves to be Red Devils faithful and make a point. As a fan himself, Rashford will be well aware of the importance and prestige of the matchup.
“Against your Liverpools and Manchester Citys, you want to prove why you play for Manchester United. Winning against Liverpool is the same feeling as when I was a kid.”
Marcus Rashford and his team have had a disastrous start to the 2022/23 Premier League season with two losses to mid-table teams in Brighton and Brentford. A loss to Liverpool at home will only set off alarm bells at Old Trafford.
Rashford is a United academy graduate and knows the importance of the fixture between the two sides. He knows what it means to the fans, the club and the people associated with it.
Another notable fact is that the forward actually has a good scoring record against us in recent teams, something which can not be said about his teammates. The forward has scored four times against us and has always looked dangerous whenever we have played them.
Liverpool hold the edge in the tie at this moment and have beaten Man United by an aggregate score of 13-2 over the last three Premier League games. However, with our own average start to the season, one cannot really put a finger on which way the tie will go.
Liverpool and Manchester United’s rivalry goes way back to the early 1970s with the domination of Liverpool before the advent of the Premier League which saw United challenge Liverpool for the throne and dominated the coming years.
