Marcus Rashford sends a consoling message to Man Utd fans after Arsenal defeat

Marcus Rashford has resorted to social media to claim that Manchester United are still on the right track following their 3-2 loss to Arsenal on Sunday.

Marcus Rashford has urged Manchester United fans to continue with them, insisting that the team is “going in the right path” following Sunday’s 3-2 loss to Arsenal.

Rashford had given Erik ten Hag’s team an early lead, only for Eddie Nketiah to swiftly equalize. Bukayo Saka’s spectacular shot put Arsenal ahead in the 53rd minute, but Lisandro Martinez equalized nearly immediately for the visitors.

With time running down, United were set to take a share of the spoils back to Manchester until Nketiah scored his second goal of the game in the last moments.

The striker’s clinching goal dealt a hammer blow to United, who had been in excellent form prior to the game. However, United dropped points late in a match for the second time in a week, after been held back by Crystal Palace in midweek.

After the late setback, Rashford moved to social media to communicate with the club’s fans and argued that United are still making fantastic progress. “Never easy to lose a game like that at the last second, but we go again!” he tweeted. We’re headed in the  right direction and need to remain positive.”

Despite Rashford’s upbeat message, former United captain Roy Keane believes that missing late points against Crystal Palace and Arsenal in the space of a few days has served as a wake-up call for his former club.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Keane said: “I think the last few days have been difficult with the dropping points last minute against Palace and the defeat today, so yeah that’s what the game does to you.

“United weren’t at their best but you think could they have hung on for the draw, take a point and move on, but it goes back to where United made progress, but then come the end of the game Shaw’s still at left back – question marks over him – Wan-Bissaka, Fred’s back in midfield, McTominay – as if United haven’t moved on from their problems of the past.


“I’m not just blaming them players because it was a tough game and you’ve got to give credit to Arsenal, but it is a reality check. I’ve said it the last few weeks, United are well short. We were missing an important player today but that’s the game, United should be able to deal with it, and when the going got tough and you’re looking at the options off the bench it wasn’t great.

“For all the money United spent, they’re still well short, and we saw that today in a game against an Arsenal team who are flying. I was always certain Man United would be going for top four, I think they’ll be fine for that, try and win a cup, but in terms of competing for league titles they’ve a bit to go yet.”
