Marcus Rashford goal scoring form has earned him praise from Frank Lampard as the Everton boss admits the Manchester United forward his talented.

Everton manager Frank Lampard claims that Marcus Rashford’s talent was the difference in their defeat to Manchester United in the FA Cup.

The Merseyside team crashed out of the FA Cup after a 3-1 defeat from Erik Ten Hag side at Old Trafford.

Lampard, who stated that he is impressed with the performance of his players claims Rashford talent was the key to United’s victory.

“The players were very, very good in the sense of the organisation, the game plan, the work ethic, the togetherness – things that should be basics in football, but people question them when you have a performance and result like we did the other night.

“We were really good, we had the better chances I think – good chances for us and a goal disallowed. Marcus Rashford was probably the difference between the teams because individual talent can do that to you.”

Asked about his future at Everton, he added: “That’s not under my control, so it’s not for me to focus on that. It’s to focus on what I saw tonight, which is a performance that every manager wants, with the attitude of the team and the focus.

“Our only focus now is Southampton because this league can change very quickly and when you’re in a difficult run, you have to work really hard to get out of it and the picture can change.”
