Despite Man City’s winning streak, Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford explained why he and his teammates aren’t really impressed by it. 

As Man City goes through a historic winning streak, Marcus Rashford doesn’t seem that impressed by the feat. Manchester United is currently sitting in second place but 10 points behind the Citizens. They have a complicated month ahead of them with a crucial Europa League match against Real Sociedad. But they are aiming to get more victories in the Premier League that can put pressure on Pep Guardiola’s team.

The Red Devils have three consecutive away matches at Chelsea, Crystal Palace, and Manchester City. All of these are league games that will define the outcome of the tournament for them. Should they manage to win all three games, it means they could get within seven points from Manchester City. But more importantly, Marcus Rashford thinks ending the Citizens’ streak is key for them. However, the England international prefers to think about their own results instead of any opponent. 

Rashford keeps spotting improvement at Man United. 

In a recent statement picked up by The Independent, this is what Rashford had to say: “We have to concentrate on ourselves and our performances. I think we’ve said all season that we’re a team that’s still improving, learning lessons about ourselves every game. We have to concentrate on ourselves and keep giving the best version of us. Ultimately that’s going to make us win the games. Yeah, definitely. I think year-on-year I try and kick on and just improve on the previous year.

“It’s something that I don’t put too much emphasis on, but if it happens I’ll be happy. The most important thing is just getting the result that we got today, the win. Now it’s just about recovery and get ready for the next Europa League game.” Manchester City also have a complicated month that will likely test their chances of winning all trophies this season. After facing Borussia Monchengladbach in the Champions League, City have four consecutive Premier League matches at home. They face West Ham United, Wolves, Manchester United, and Southampton. Will they lose that streak any time soon?
