Manchester United’s Frustration Grows Over Rashford Ball Usage as They Face Crystal Palace

Manchester United’s coaching staff is getting frustrated with Marcus Rashford ball handling during their match against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford. They find Rashford’s use of the ball disappointing.

The game started with Manchester United mostly keeping the ball in their own half looking for chances to attack. Rashford tried to make a sprint forward early on but a Palace defender Joel Ward stopped him.

In the first half, Marcus showed some fancy footwork getting past two Palace defenders but then a group of defenders blocked his way. He struggled to pass the ball to another attacking player on time and this led to a corner kick for Manchester United. Unfortunately, they couldn’t make anything happen from the corner.

Things got worse when Rashford failed to make a good play on the left side and Crystal Palace quickly launched a counter attack. Fortunately Diogo Dalot intervened at the right moment.

At halftime Joachim Andersen’s goal in the 25th minute had Crystal Palace ahead. Besides Rashford’s struggles Manchester United’s performance was lacking its usual energy. In contrast Crystal Palace had a strong defensive strategy that stopped United’s usually strong attacking players.

Now in the second half people are wondering about Rashford’s effectiveness. The coaching staff is questioning his ability to make the right decisions in important moments and the manager Erik ten Hag might think about replacing Marcus with a fresh player as Manchester United tries to turn things around.

Manchester United has been struggling to score goals in the Premier League even after getting a new striker Rasmus Hojlund. They’ve only scored seven goals in seven games which is the worst among the top 10 teams.

Hojlund did well in the Champions League match against Bayern Munich but he hasn’t scored in the Premier League yet. Rashford is facing criticism for not passing the ball enough especially when surrounded by defenders.

Rashford was the top scorer for Manchester United last season but now people are questioning whether he’s willing to adapt his style of play to include Hojlund who makes aggressive runs into the box.

In an interview Rashford expressed excitement about playing with Hojlund but admitted it’s taking time to adjust to having the young Dane as a striking partner. They’ve been working on their partnership off the pitch and patience will be crucial as they try to figure out how to work together effectively.

In the end it remains to be seen whether the Rashford Hojlund partnership can help Manchester United overcome their current goal scoring challenge but for now it’s a work in progress.
