Its been a decent return for Marcus Rashford following a surgery he underwent on his left shoulder that had kept him out of action since the start of the season. The Englishman made his comeback from Injury last weekend against the Foxes and although he scored, his goal wasn't enough to help his team avoid defeat. In the Champions league yesterday, the 23 year old was on the scoresheet once again as United came from behind to secure a thrilling 3-2 win over Atalanta. Although he was substituted in the 66th minute in what looked like a dead leg injury, it is expected that he will be fit in time to face Liverpool this Sunday.
However, given his latest performance, here is one key area in his game that he needs to improve on;
When it comes to pace and other scintillating skills, Marcus Rashford is clearly on top of the list in Manchester United's attacking options. The Englishman does everything right to set himself up nicely, but his finishing doesn't always coincide with his ball play. Against Atalanta yesterday, Rashford had series of opportunities to reduce the deficit for Manchester United both in the first and second half, but his finishing were not accurate enough to find the target. Over half of Manchester United's chances that went off target was spurned by him.
However, he did make amends for his profligacy in the 53rd minute after Bruno Fernandes had released him with a sublime pass, but perhaps United wouldn't have taken so long to get back into the game had he not allowed goalscoring opportunities to go begging.
Take nothing away from Marcus Rashford's abilities, he is a fantastic player and on his best day, he can cause defenders all sorts of problems, but if he intends to take his career to a bigger level, then he must work seriously on his finishing going forward.
