Marcus Rashford spotted Wolves problem minutes before netting Man Utd winner

Marcus Rashford has explained how he spotted an injury in the Wolves back-line before netting Manchester United’s winner at Old Trafford.

Rashford scored the only goal of the game in stoppage time as his strike deflected in off Romain Saiss.

Rashford latched on to a long ball from Bruno Fernandes before twisting and turning past the Wolves defence and firing home.

And the England star was keen to run at the visiting side late on, as he said: “The full back [Rayan Ait-Nouri], I think he got cramp a few minutes before so I just had in my head, I'm going to go at him and make him chop and turn.

“See if I can make something happen. Thankfully we got a deflection and it went in.

"It's the deciding goal. Probably not the most beautiful goal but we'll take that and the three points and move on.

“Today was a tough game, we expected a tough game. At the end of the day we managed to get over the line."

"For us, we can't look too far ahead. We are a team that is still doing a lot of work on ourselves.

United had struggled to break Wolves down with both teams having appeared settled for a point.

Though Rashford struck late on an was glad to take the three points, adding: "It means a lot.

“We were a bit disappointed that we didn't play as well as we could have but at the end of the day it's three points. No matter how scrappy, we'll take them."
