Marcus Rashford has warned his teammates they need to stop the habit of conceding first in matches, and try to keep more clean sheets.

The Red Devils beat West Ham away from home tonight, after an incredible second half performance that saw goals from Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood seal a 3-1 win for United.

But things could have been different, if the hosts were more clinical in the first half.

Tomas Souçek gave the London side the lead after the half hour mark, and Sebastian Haller had a glorious chance to double their lead, but instead he missed with just the net in his way.

Speaking after the game, Rashford, who scored our third goal, warned that there’s need for improvement.

He told the media, “We need to stop doing that [having to keep coming back from behind], ideally we need to be keeping clean sheets and start better”.

This was United’s ninth consecutive away win, and it shows the team is developing a stronger mindset.
