Marcus Rashford was at fault for Arsenal’s late equaliser in the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford on Saturday, according to Jamie Redknapp.

The Red Devils forward, moved into a central position due to Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s absence, was unable to to press Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain quickly enough as he delivered the ball into the United box.

Substitute Olivier Giroud latched onto the cross and nodded a late equaliser with the Gunners’ only shot on target during the game, leaving Redknapp lamenting Rashford’s lack of urgency while defending.

“I’m a big fan of Marcus Rashford but I don’t think he does well enough at all. Whether you’re a centre forward or not, you’ve got to do better,” Redknapp told Sky Sports. “He let his team down there.

“He doesn’t get out to Chamberlain quick enough, he lets him run at him and pick up pace. He gets beaten miles too easily.

“You’re hanging on for dear life to win such an important game. He didn’t do enough, he really didn’t, and I’ll be amazed if Mourinho isn’t telling him that in the dressing room.

“No matter what position you play, when you’re hanging on for a win you’ve got to do a job and he didn’t do it.”
