Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford is enjoying life under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has revealed that they are 'three or four steps' ahead from where they were last season.
Speaking ahead of the fixture, which will be the first full campaign for Solskjaer, Rashford noted that the squad is doing better now, more than they were under former manager Jose Mourinho.
“It definitely feels different,” he admitted to Sky Sports.
“For starters, physically we're at a much better position than we were this time last year, going into the season,"
“We're already three or four steps ahead of where we were last season, and now it's about putting the fundamentals down about how we're going to play,"
Rasfhord further revealed the difference between the two managers, adding;
“I'd say the intensity change, from how we were towards the end of last season, to where we are now,"
“It's so clear to see the difference in terms of intensity, especially without the ball. That's where we've taken a lot of strides forward,"
The Englishman will be the key striker for United this season, after the departure of Romelu Lukaku, who left for Italian giants Inter Milan.
