Rashford will now be fresh for the crunch Champions League clash with PSG in midweek.

It’s been a good week for the forward, after he won the Premier League Player of the Month award.

“It’s always good to pick up individual awards but I think the way we’ve performed as a team has been very good over the last few weeks,” Rashford told Manchester United’s official website.

“The aim for us now is to just continue it, but we have to take it game by game and one step at a time.

“Consistency is something you always want to improve and, for a young player, it can be difficult but I think over the last two months we’ve got it right.”
