Manchester United legend Bryan Robson thinks Marcus Rashford has gained some of his form, thanks to ‘brave’ Anthony Elanga’s presence.
Elanga has been one of Ralf Rangnick’s undroppable players at Man United in recent weeks and has started in United’s last three Premier League matches.
The Swede scored the opener during Manchester United’s 3-1 win over Brentford. The Man United academy graduate had started and impressed against Aston Villa before putting out another decent show as United beat West Ham United 1-0 last weekend.
Marcus Rashford started Man United’s last two games on the bench but came on to score United’s third goal against Brentford and a last-minute match-winning goal against West Ham United, the latter at Old Trafford.
‘I think Elanga has done really well in the three games he’s played,’ Robson told United Daily.
’He’s shown loads of energy, he’s brave and quick, he’s got a lot about him.
‘I think because he’s been in the team a couple of times it just looks like it’s sharpened Marcus [Rashford] up and Marcus knows he’s got to work hard, he’s got to start scoring goals again, which he’s proved in the last few games.
‘So hopefully that’ll spur Marcus into coming back into form.’
Manchester United will face Middlesbrough next week in the FA Cup and both forwards would be available for the clash, giving Rangnick a significant dilemma.
