Erik ten Hag commented on Rashford's and Weghorst's performance

Marcus Rashford confirmed his great form after Manchester United won against Nottingham Forrest. This match is probably a confirmation that Manchester United will play in the final of the EFL Cup. The game at Old Trafford should be a formality.

Rashford scored the first goal of the match and showed what kind of player he is. Erik ten Hag was satisfied with the young Englishman's performance. "Other players are playing well but I am happy with Marcus. His performance and his development since the start of the season is growing and he keeps doing that.

We have to - and, of course, he is responsible for this too - keep that process going.
In this mood and this spirit, I think he is unstoppable. Then it is about the team getting in the right positions.
In possession we have a plan.

But it is also about intuition and the creativity of the individuals like Rashford to create chances.
When you have players like Rashford, like Bruno, like Antony, like [Anthony] Martial, and like Christian Eriksen, don't forget him,[who can] be creative in the final third and do something unexpected, some crazy stuff, it also gives the team some fantasy and adventure."

Erik ten Hag on his team

Erik ten Hag does not want to create euphoria.

He is aware that many more matches await them. The imperative remains the same: Only victories "We have many games, Marcus did his job, scored another goal, we were winning, in a good position and [Alejandro] Garnacho is really hungry to play games, play minutes and also to come into the team,” he told Sky Sports.
"Yeah, we have to play one (more) game.

We have to do the same, prepare and make a good plan. The players have to be focused." Wout Weghorst was also the scorer of one goal. "It's important for him and for his confidence that he scored that goal," said Ten Hag.
"He did a great job at Crystal Palace and Arsenal with his pressing, targets and movements.
He was part of Bruno's [Fernandes'] goal at Palace because he makes the right movement to the front post.

He was part of Rashford's goal at Arsenal because he dragged the centre-half away.
But strikers are there to score goals and when they don't score they're not happy."
