Manchester United ace Mata: Rashford just like…

Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata says Marcus Rashford is similar to Anthony Martial.

Rashford was drafted into United’s first-team line-up as a replacement for the injured Martial and found the net four times in his first two United games.

“He looks similar to Anthony Martial in a way,” Mata said.

“They’re both quick and go against the defenders, they both have goals in their pocket. It’s not about comparing, it’s about taking profit of them.

“As I was playing behind him, I just told him I would try to play passes in behind the defence; he’s very quick so we just tried to connect between each other.”
