‘The worst thing you can say’ – Marcus Rashford handed unwanted Manchester United comparison

Manchester United suffered their 10th defeat of the season at St James&apos Park on Saturday, Anthony Gordon&aposs second-half tap in the only goal of a 1-0 home win. Newcastle could have won far more comfortably and Erik ten Hag&aposs side were poor away from home once again.

Rashford and Martial were the source of much frustration, with the pair showing little effort to close down Magpies defenders as they stepped into midfield. Ten Hag was visibly frustrated with both at points during the game and hooked them on the hour mark.

It was an unacceptable performance, for a few reasons, Carragher told Sky Sports of Rashford. He didnt play midweek, and if theres any mitigating circumstances for someone not being 100%, its playing midweek in Europe.

Ive been a local player and it isnt easy, especially when your team is not doing well. When its not going well, its your job to fix it and youve got to drag other people up with you.
