Marcus Rashford TEAMtalk

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has revealed the secret behind his penalty technique after confidently dispatching another from 12 yards against Leicester.

The England frontman notched his third goal of the season at Old Trafford and despite missing from the spot against Crystal Palace, Rashford bounced back to net what turned out to be the winner against the Foxes.

Much has been made of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s decision to split penalty-taking duties between Rashford and Paul Pogba, with the latter also missing from the spot against Wolves.

However, with Pogba missing against Brendan Rodgers’ men, Rashford stepped up and admitted he was glad to get “back to basics” at the Theatre of Dreams.

“There has been a lot of talk [about penalties] but it is all about clearing that out of your head and just getting back down to basics,”Rashford told MUTV.

“When it comes down to it, that is all you know, to get to the first team, it is by doing the basics and working hard.

“I just try to look at the keeper, especially a keeper like him because he has a good jump and likes to go early. If it is not hard and in the corner, then he has a chance of saving it. But it was a nice feeling to score.”
