West Brom captain Darren Fletcher: I knew about Rashford at Manchester United 

West Brom captain Darren Fletcher was aware of Marcus Rashford when he was at Manchester United.

His name was unfamiliar to most, but not Fletcher who became aware of the talented teenager during his time at Old Trafford.

The teenager has scored four goals in two games, scoring twice on his full team debut against FC Midtjylland in the Europe League, followed by a double against Arsenal last Sunday. 

“His name rang out when I was there but he was very young,” the Scotland international said.

“Injuries and things have played a part and he has got his chance.

“But he is ready to take it, all the kids have stepped in and done fantastic for United.

“Their season looks to have turned around a little bit and they are still battling for top four and getting in the Champions League where they belong.

“A team like Manchester United should be challenging for the title but the bare minimum is Champions League qualification and they will be doing their everything they can to achieve that.

“But come Sunday my full focus is solely on West Brom and getting us three points closer to that magic 40 points mark.

“Then we can see where we can take our season from there.”
