Manager Erik Ten Hag’s side seemed out of sync, consistently losing every 50-50 ball and lacking the readiness for a physical battle on the field.

Notably, Marcus Rashford had a particularly underwhelming performance, a recurring theme throughout this campaign.

This pattern has characterized Rashford’s career, where he excels for a season, experiences regression the following term, before rediscovering his form in a cyclical manner.

Despite potential positional challenges on the right, Rashford’s lack of effort was inexcusable, especially considering he represents one of the world’s biggest clubs and is reportedly a fan himself.

Tino Livramento exploited the situation on the right, taking advantage of Rashford’s failure to track back and easily dribbling past him.

Rashford’s body language, with a visibly dropping head after unsuccessful attempts against Livramento, raised concerns.

Winning only 25% of his duels and losing possession nine times in 60 minutes reflected a disastrous first-half showing.

With just 22 touches on the ball and a passing accuracy rate of a dismal 65%, Rashford’s lackluster performance stood in stark contrast to Antony, who nearly matched his touches in half the time and had a disallowed goal for offside.

The stats further highlighted Rashford’s struggles, with zero successful crosses, key passes, and shots, and only one successful long ball (stats via Sofascore).

Looking ahead, Ten Hag faces a decision to drop Rashford for the upcoming game against Chelsea and consider playing Antony on the right.

It is imperative for the coaching staff to assist Rashford in regaining his form, as his current performances are letting down the club, teammates, and fans alike.
