Reason why Marcus Rashford’s was substituted during Newscastle vs Manchester United Epl match clash

A lot of people are talking about Marcus Rashford’s first response after being taken off in the 61st minute of Manchester United’s 1-0 loss to Newcastle United.

Eddie Howe’s team won at a lively St. James’ Park on Saturday night thanks to Anthony Gordon’s goal in the second half.

The Magpies never gave up, and United only had one shot on goal the whole game.

United’s front line never looked strong, and Ten Hag was seen arguing with Anthony Martial in the first half.

After Gordon scored the first goal, Ten Hag chose to make a change. Rashford was surprised when he took Martial and Rashford off for Rasmus Hojlund and Antony just after the hour mark.

These 26-year-olds have had a rough season after a great first year under Ten Hag.

Rashford got 30 goals across all competitions for Manchester United last season, which helped them finish third and win the Carabao Cup.

This season, the story is very different. The penalty he scored in last week’s 3-0 win over Everton was his first goal since September. He has scored two goals so far.

The young attack trio of Antony, Hojlund, and Alejandro Garnacho failed to break through Newcastle’s back line, but Rashford, who often won games for his childhood team, had to watch from the bench.

People have also said that Rashford doesn’t put in enough effort in games, pointing out a time just before he was taken off.

As Rashford and Tino Livramento fought for the ball, Rashford seemed to move back and let the young full-back run forward on the attack.

While Rashford usually plays on the left side, he lined up on the right. Jermaine Jenas of TNT Sports wondered if Rashford’s lack of excitement was a dig at Ten Hag.

“I think he’s telling his manager something like, ‘I don’t want to play out here,'” he said. Putting your team under that much pressure by not doing your job as a wide player and running back is illegal. He is looking at Alejandro Garnacho on the left.

“It’s also clear that [Tino] Livramento knows he doesn’t want to go with him.” He’s never there, and it happens over and over.

“He has no interest in tracking him back and [Harry] Maguire and [Luke] Shaw are constantly coming to the rescue due to the ineptitude of the wide players.”
