Ahead of Sunday’s Premier League game against Liverpool at Old Trafford, former Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher believes Marcus Rashford’s season could burst into life against the league leaders.

Rashford has had a poor start to the season, scoring three goals in eight games and Fletcher believes Rashford is feeling the pressure of being the main man.

“I think he is feeling the pressure of that [being the main man] a little bit this season, you want to say to him ‘relax, don’t try too hard’,” Fletcher told Sky Sports.

“We want him to try, obviously, but it’s a case of not trying too hard – wait for your opportunities.

“I think for Marcus Rashford, like Manchester United, it could be the game that kick-starts the season.

“He’s a real talisman and the goals and performances are in him, all it takes is something to click.”
