Erik ten Hag lavished praises on Manchester United’s in-form forward Marcus Rashford for his intuition and challenged the rest of the Manchester United forwards to conjure up “crazy stuff” in the final third.

Rashford scored his 10th goal in as many games in the sixth minute of United’s 3-0 League Cup semi-final first-leg win at Nottingham Forest when he scored one of three goals

The England international scored one of the two goals by United on Sunday in their 3-0 loss to Arsenal.

Since the club season resumed, Rashford has only failed to score in one game and he is already four goals shy of his season-best tally of 22 from the 2019-20 campaign.

“There are more players who are playing really well but I am happy with Marcus’s performance and his development,” Erik Ten Hag said at his post-match conference.

“From the start of the season he is growing and he keeps doing that and what we have to aim for with him, and he is responsible for that, is to keep this process going. If he is in this mood, this spirit he is unstoppable and it’s about the team to get him in the right positions.

“Also, in possession, we have a plan but finally is also the intuition, the creativity of an individual like Rashy is to create chances.

“We have some of it like Rashy, Bruno (Fernandes), Antony definitely as well, Jadon Sancho is one, (Anthony) Martial is one. We need such type of players. Christian Eriksen, don’t forget him.
