Roy Keane has called on Marcus Rashford to maintain his goalscoring form after conceding a late penalty in Man United’s FA Cup win over Everton.

Erik ten Hag’s side booked their place in the next round of the competition thanks to goals from Antony, Rashford and a Conor Coady own goal. The Everton defender also scored his side’s equalizer in the first-half.

Rashford was instrumental in the victory and received praise from the ITV pundits after the game, with United legend Keane saying he ‘expects’ the highest level of performance from the England forward.

Speaking after the game, Keane said: ‘This is what I expected from him today. I wasn’t surprised by what I saw of him tonight. I think he is becoming one of the key players for United.

‘Can he bring them back to competing for trophies? He takes responsibility. I kind of expect this from Marcus every week. When he gets full-backs in 1v1s, he’ll come at you. Nor can we be too critical of them [Everton] defense tonight.

Rashford helped restore Man United’s lead into the game in the second-half, after Seamus Coleman got wind of it and drilled a cross into the box that Coady turned into his own net.

‘Even a 24-year-old Seamus Coleman can’t defend that. He’s just too fast. He decides what he’s going to do – that’s what good players do,’ continued Keane.

‘You can’t stop players who are in top form. And Seamus, he [Rashford] he took a toast there.’

The England forward has made it five goals in his last five games after conceding a late penalty for his side in a 3-1 win.

Speaking on his current form, after the match, Rashford said: ‘In terms of performances, it’s probably the best I’ve done so I feel good on the pitch, I get into positions and places to score goals . If I keep creating chances, I feel like I’ll keep scoring.’

Earlier in the game, Rashford’s team-mate David De Gea came under scrutiny for his role in Everton’s equaliser.

The Spaniard allowed the ball to squeeze between his legs and into the path of Everton defender Conor Coady who converted from close range to level the game.

United hope to continue their good form in their next game, where they face Charlton Athletic in a Carabao Cup tie on Tuesday night.
