Marcus Rashford doubles down on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s title comments

Marcus Rashford believes Manchester United are still in with a chance of winning the Premier League this season, despite manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claiming his side "shouldn't have been considered as title contenders."

Speaking after United's 3-3 draw with Everton earlier this month, Solskjaer said: "We're not talking about winning titles. We've come a long way this team and we shouldn't have been considered as title contenders."

However, in an interview with Sky Sports, Rashford claimed that "there is still a chance" that United could win the league.

Asked about the progress the squad has made under Solskjaer, Rashford said: "The image that we wanted and the Manchester United team that we wanted to be, we have taken massive steps towards that.

"It's been up and down but we have shown that we improved, without a doubt. At the same time we have missed out on silly things, like the Champions League. We shouldn't have got knocked out of that.

"There have been a few games where we haven't shown the true resemblance of how far we have come. That is something we still have to work on, becoming more consistent. If we do that, we will go on to do big things."

When asked about United's chances of winning the Premier League this season, the 23-year-old added: "There is still a chance. There is always a chance. But we just have to focus on ourselves and focus on taking steps forward as a team.

"We are far from the finished article. The team that you see this season should hopefully improve next season. We are still on the journey of becoming the best team that we can be. If we do that, then we have definitely got a chance of winning big trophies."

United are currently third in the league and eight points behind top of the table Manchester City.
