'He's not improved': Jamie Redknapp says striker Arsenal reportedly want hasn't got any better in five years

Marcus Rashford led the line for Manchester United in their 4-0 defeat against bitter rivals Liverpool last night.

United’s next game is against Arsenal, and if they play that badly again, they will get nothing from the Emirates Stadium either.

That game will see Rashford come up against a manager and club who want to sign him in the summer, according to a report from 90min.

Pundit Jamie Redknapp said on TalkSPORT, at 9.17am that the game underlined that Rashford has not improved since breaking through as a teenager more than five years ago.

“There was a couple of examples. I watched Marcus Rashford and Fabinho played a ball past him and he just let him run off him.

“Then the next one came and he still let him run. I’m thinking that’s your job, these are basic things you have to go and do.

“You have to understand what the manager want. Marcus is a great example. He’s not improved since he was 19 years of age. Nobody has worked with him, or told him what to do, or given him the right basics about how to improve.”

Rashford’s confidence looks to be on the floor, and having surgery in the early part of the season has not done the trick in terms of getting him back to his best form.

Does he need a fresh start? He certainly looks like he could do with some more coaching, but there also has to be some onus on the player himself to get himself out of this rut.

Arsenal will be hoping that Rashford does not find his best form on Saturday, in what is a huge game in the chase for the top four.
