Marcus Rashford has insisted that Manchester United are simply focused on winning their own games in the top four race after their 1-0 win at Leicester City on Sunday.

Rashford scored the only goal of the game for the Red Devils when he first home in the ninth minute to help Manchester United return to winning ways on the back of their 2-2 draw with Burnley last week.

The result lifted Manchester United up into fifth place in the Premier League table and left them two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea FC in the race for Champions League qualification.

Speaking to Manchester United’s website after the game, Rashford insisted that the Red Devils are solely focused on their own results as they try and break back into the top four.

He said: “You know, we’re just concentrating on ourselves. Trying to keep winning matches and then we’ll see how it pans out towards the end of the season.”

Reflecting on Sunday’s win, Rashford continued: “[It] was a different kind of game.

“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.”

Rashford has been in good form for Manchester United in recent weeks and has scored nine goals and made six assists in 23 Premier League games so far.

Manchester United will return to Premier League action next weekend when they take on Fulham on Saturday lunchtime away from home.
