Marcus Rashford warns his side against conceding first

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has urged his fellow teammates to avoid the tendency of conceding first in games.

United for another time had to come from a goal down to beat West Ham on Saturday and according to the English forward, the club needed to stop doing that.

"We need to stop doing that. If we keep more clean sheets we will win more games. It is good that we show spirit to come back when we concede a goal but ideally we don't want to be conceding.

“We defended quite well, they have some dangerous players and especially in the first half, you could see that on the counterattack,” Rashford said in his post-match comments with Sky Sports.

On the game, Rashford added: “They were attacking with some big threats and we managed to get through it 1-0. Once you get to half-time it is an opportunity to regroup and come out for the second half with a new of focus and that is what we did.”

It was United’s fifth successive away Premier League win of the season with the team just now two points off the top place.
