Marcus Rashford issues defiant response to Man Utd's defeat to Arsenal


Marcus Rashford has maintained that Manchester United “always bounce back” from negative results and expects them to do so again.

It was United’s third league defeat in four games at Old Trafford following losses to Crystal Palace and Tottenham.

Rashford and co were hoping to build on their impressive European win over RB Leipzig during the week but were unable to match those performance levels.

The defeat leaves United in 15th place, nine points off leaders Liverpool at this early stage.

But despite the disappointment Rashford is confident that he and his team-mates will come back stronger and get back to winning ways.
