Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has urged his teammates to be united and look to bounce back after the disappointing defeat to Arsenal on Sunday.

The Gunners secured all three points and their first win over us in 14 years at Old Trafford courtesy of a goal by Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The defeat means we are still winless at home this season and sit in 15th place on the Premier League table just four points above the relegation zone, having lost three of our first six games.

Despite our mixed start, Rashford is confident that both him and his team-mates can turn things around.

“It’s been tough,” Rashford told the club’s official website. “Obviously, we’ve had a lot of big games and games we need to get points in. It’s been a bit up and down but it’s like that sometimes.

“Like you say, it’s been an alright month but, for now, it’s all about sticking together and finding a way to win games and really picking up the belief.

“We always bounce back when we don’t do so well and I think it’s another one of those times.

“We have to come together as a team, get back to the basics, and win games.”

“As a club, that’s our next focus now,” he added.

“We’ve analysed the Arsenal game and we can’t dwell on that for too long, otherwise it will affect our next performance.

“It’s important we go there with a fresh mind, a clean slate, play well and win the game.”

Next up for the club is an away game in Turkey against Istanbul Basaksehir in the Champions League.
