Rashford calls on Man Utd to replicate derby standards after extending purple patch against City

The England international was among the goals again at the Etrihad Stadium, with Scott McTominay saying the Red Devils were “frightening” at times

Marcus Rashford is looking for Manchester United to replicate the standards they set in the first half-an-hour of Saturday's 2-1 derby win over Manchester City, with the challenge now to produce for an entire game.

The Red Devils have struggled for consistency again this season, with a standing outside of the Premier League’s top four a direct consequence of that.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have, however, moved to within five points of the Champions League places on the back of a productive week which has delivered morale-boosting victories over Tottenham and City.
