WHAT HAPPENED? The striker scored the winner for Erik ten Hag's side as they beat West Ham 1-0 on Sunday to bring up his century for the Red Devils. Rashford spoke after the match about his improvement in form this season and what he thinks has changed for him at Old Trafford.

WHAT THEY SAID: "I think, to be honest, it's a completely different energy around the club and the training ground. That for a start puts me in a better headspace and I just feel really motivated now," he told Sky Sports. "That's something I struggle with at times, more mental things, not really my own performance but other things off the pitch. That's the biggest difference. For us we have to try and get in the right headspace for every game. Too often last season I wasn't in the right space for games."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Man Utd's win over West Ham extends the team's unbeaten run to eight matches and moves the Red Devils into fifth place in the table. Ten Hag's men are just a point behind Newcastle United in fourth and have a game in hand on the Magpies.
