Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford unhappy with his form
In fact, after ending up with 30 goals at the last season’s end in order to extend his five-year agreement, Rashford has managed to score only once during his first fifteen contests of this year.
Ten Hag said:
“I think he is not happy. We are not happy. He has high expectations for himself and at this moment he is not in his best form.”
The England attacker was sent off in United’s 4-3 Champions League loss to Copenhagen on Wednesday, but manager Ten Hag says he still has faith in him, even though he acknowledges that not everyone is pleased with his performance. However, the forward is set to start against Luton.
Wednesday night’s match against Copenhagen had the Red Devils ahead 2-0 early on, but Rashford’s red card shortly before halftime turned the tide of play. Rashford was sent off to continue his miserable season after failing to contribute.
With just 12 Premier League goals, United are among the lowest-scoring teams in the league, but Ten Hag believes Rashford won’t be far from returning to scoring regularly ahead of Luton Town’s visit to Old Trafford.
After United’s humiliating 3-0 derby loss to Manchester City, Ten Hag reprimanded the 26-year-old Rashford for attending his birthday celebration. Rashford has one goal in eleven Premier League games.
With two Group A games remaining, United’s setback has left them precariously positioned. The England striker’s dismissal on Wednesday led to a dramatic change in Copenhagen’s momentum.

Not only Rashford appears to be having difficulties. It has also been difficult for other Manchester United attackers to routinely find the back of the net. We hope that Rashford quickly adapts to the form he had last season and helps us gain momentum in the competition.
