Marcus Rashford has admitted Manchester United ‘were not good enough’ in Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea.
United lost the game 3-1, with the Red Devils turning in a flat performance when it really mattered.
Rashford himself struggled to make an impact and he was substituted after 78 minutes.
He sent a message out on social media this morning, saying United need to ‘brush off’ the defeat and move on to focus on this week’s upcoming Premier League matches.
A win and even just a draw against West Ham and Leicester will be enough to seal Champions League qualification this week.
United need to play a lot better than we did at Wembley, and return to Old Trafford for the tie with West Ham on Wednesday night.
Sunday was a day where nothing went right for United. When Rashford tried to replicate his Stamford Bridge free-kick against them, it ballooned over the bar.
Rashford has improved over the last couple of league games, scoring against both Southampton and Crystal Palace.
Sunday was a setback, but one which need not derail United’s season. There is plenty still to play for.
