The 26-year-old defender has now fully recovered from his hip injury.
Manchester United forward Marcus Rahsford is finally living up to his potential as he has been in tremendous form lately, scoring 19 goals in last 23 games for his club and country. Harry Maguire is also pleased with his teammate’s performance and has warned other clubs that Rashford’s goal-scoring spree is far from over.
Rashford has scored 14 goals so far in the Premier League this season and is now joint second in the race for the golden boot. He played brilliantly in the last league game against Norwich City as he hit a brace in United’s 4-0 win at Old Trafford.
Harry Maguire hailed his teammate’s performance by saying, “I’m pleased for him this year that he is starting to get the goals he deserves, and hopefully, he has not stopped yet. He has a few more in the tank from now until the end of the season.”
“He’s a top player with top quality. I can remember one of the first sessions when I went to train with England, he really stood out to me there — his ability on the ball, his technique. He has everything to go and have a career at the highest level.”, Harry Maguire told Espn.
On United’s consistency
United’s all-round display against Norwich healed some wounds of a crushing defeat against the defending champions Manchester City in the Carabao Cup. However, they still have a tough road ahead as they will face Wolverhampton Wanderers and Liverpool this week in the FA Cup and Premier League respectively.
The England centre-back said, “Our problem has been inconsistency. We have played two good games and one bad game, and it has not been good enough in terms of that. We are not getting carried away. It was a good performance [against Norwich], clean sheet, win, but we have to go again. If we put a few wins together on the bounce, we will have every chance [of finishing in the top four].”
He suffered a hip injury during a goalless draw in the first FA Cup third-round game at the Molineux but has declared himself fit for the upcoming encounter on Wednesday night.
Maguire remarked, “I had a problem with my [hip] muscle, but it was only a small muscle, and I normally recover quickly and can play with a bit of pain. I’m alright now and got through the game unscathed. So, now I feel good and ready to go again.”
Having gained 34 points in 22 matches, United is within touching distance of the top-4 as they are currently sitting on the fifth position in the Premier League table.
