Manchester United star insisted that his club are in a similar situation to that of Sunday’s opponents Chelsea.
The United Player speaking to MUTV made this statement when asked about Sunday Clash with the Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
“I think they’re in a similar situation as us,” Rashford told MUTV. “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. I think they’ve got a good plan of where they want to be.
“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.”
United struggled to assert themselves in the 0-0 draw against Liverpool but put in a fine performance in the 4-1 win over Fenerbahce in midweek, and Rashford insists that a fast start is what is needed at Stamford Bridge.
“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,” he added. “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.”
