Rashford needs to be more clinical – Ten Hag.

Rashford needs to be more clinical – Ten Hag.

Marcus Rashford has been tasked by Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag to use his aggravation over previous missed opportunities to score against Newcastle United in the Premier League on Sunday.

Rashford had 10 efforts on goal in Thursday’s 1-0 Europa League triumph over Omonia Nicosia but failed to score, and it was midfielder Scott McTominay who saved United with a stoppage-time winner.

“He knows that he has to be more clinical,” Ten Hag told a news conference.

“When he has such good movement, makes such good combinations, has such good actions, he has to finish. But sometimes it’s not your night, it’s the form of the day but it can change to another game.

“He is on a very good run, he proves that with the chances he creates. The last two games he was a little bit unlucky but I say save it for the coming week.”

With five goals across all competitions, Rashford leads United in scoring, but with his fellow forwards also struggling for consistency, Ten Hag’s team needs him to score more often if they want to challenge for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Anthony Martial has battled injuries and is a doubt for the Newcastle game after being taken off against Everton after only 29 minutes last Sunday. Cristiano Ronaldo has only scored twice this season.

The one exception is Brazilian forward Antony, who scored goals against Arsenal, Manchester City, and Everton in his first three league games to become the first player in club history to do so.

Ten Hag encouraged his offensive players to score more goals, but he also stated that he wanted players in all positions to be involved in scoring.

“I’m confident, mostly, that my players will score. We have players in the squad but we are divided because we have many goalscorers across the offensive department but we also need something from midfield and defensive departments,” he said.

The Dutch coach also said the last-gasp win over Omonia would lift his side’s spirits ahead of a gruelling week of Premier League fixtures against Newcastle, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea.

“It gives another impulse in the team. The belief and the spirit is already good but it will give a push for the rest,” he added. “We are against tough opponents but we are looking forward, it’s a real test for us as a squad.”
