The England international has rediscovered his best form in recent weeks.

Marcus Rashford prefers to play on the left-hand side of Manchester United’s attacking line.

Rashford opened the scoring for United when they cruised past Nottingham Forest with a 3-0 win on Tuesday.

Following an impressive World Cup campaign with England, it seems Rashford is ready to secure his place in Erik ten Hag’s lineup.

The 25-year-old plays both as a left-winger and a central forward at Old Trafford. But he admits playing on the left flank is more appealing to him.

“I think it depends on opposition, it depends on the personality you’re playing against,” Rashford told Amazon Prime.

“More often than not I prefer to play on the left but if there’s a weakness in the middle or if there’s a certain player I feel I can exploit I like to have the freedom to move and do that.

“I feel comfortable in those positions, and I want to score goals. Every forward has a number they want to try and reach.

“For me it’s to score more than I’ve ever scored in a season so for me I think it’s 22, 23. I need to try and keep scoring and affecting the games.”

Man Utd will take on Wolves in their next Premier League game on Saturday. Let’s see if Rashford can continue his goalscoring run at Molineux.
