Manchester United striker and new wonderkid Marcus Rashford spoke ahead of the Red Devils visit to Stamford Bridge, explaining which tactic his team will play to try to stop Chelsea:
“You never know how the game is going to be until you get out there but I think it’s important we get into the game and start fast,” Rashford told MUTV.
“That’s what we did against Liverpool – we got into their faces and showed we weren’t going to be pushed around, and we need to go there with a similar attitude. The bigger the games are, the better for us.
“We have to try to keep them quiet and give ourselves the freedom to play as well, but it’s a difficult thing to do, especially away from home, so we have to have the same mentality and mindset as we did at Anfield.
“In these games, it’s a lot to do with one-v-ones and, if you get the better of your opponent, maybe you get the better of the game; that could be the situation on Sunday, so I think we have to work hard individually and collectively to get a result.”
Speaking about Chelsea, Rashford said:
“They have a very strong squad. They’ve been a bit up and down but the manager has got them in a good shape and structure, and I think they’ve got a good plan of where they want to be.
“I think they’re in a similar situation as us. But if we can go there, produce a good team performance and hopefully get the three points, that will give us a good boost and could set us up for the rest of the season.”
