Man Utd’s Marcus Rashford doesn’t do what Tammy Abraham excels at

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford needs to become a fox in the box.

That’s according to former Premier League star turned pundit Jermaine Jenas who reckons Tammy Abraham is a more natural poacher.

Abraham has impressed for Chelsea having been on loan at Aston Villa last season in the Championship.

He bagged a hat-trick against Wolves and an England call up now looks likely.

Rashford is already a regular for the Three Lions – and scored in United’s 1-0 win over Leicester last Saturday – but Jenas thinks he can still improve.

“As good as Rashford is, I look at [Pierre-Emerick] Aubameyang and Tammy Abraham and they get lots of scruffy goals, the tap-ins. Marcus doesn’t score many tap ins,” he told The Express .

“Well they’ve had the worst start Man U have had. You can’t say if that continues the Man United board will ignore that.”

Abraham, meanwhile, bagged 26 goals in 40 games during his stint in the Midlands.

"I'm so delighted for him,” Lampard said after watching Abraham bag a hat-trick.

“I know how hard the academy works and Tammy has a fantastic approach to the game and how he wants to progress.

"All three goals of his goals were so different, it just shows what he can do."

Abraham is eager to prove himself at the highest level having looked so dangerous in the second tier.

"I hope this is my season," Abraham said.

"I have to keep working hard in every training session, every game. Every game I want to prove myself to the gaffer."
