Arsenal legend Thierry Henry has told Marcus Rashford ‘power is not always the answer’ after seeing the Manchester United striker denied a goal against Tottenham.

Rashford had two great chances to score and Henry was critical of the Manchester United forward for opting for power over finesse.

“He could have done better,” Henry told Amazon Prime.

“This is what I say, when this ball is coming to you, have a look at the goalkeeper to freeze him. Strikers don’t do that often, the ball is coming to you, you know it, you have look at the goalkeeper to freeze him and he never looked.

“What you do normally, he just fires low and across. Power is not always the answer.

“You open the ball up, just finish it. Place it down here. Why hard? Side foot, goal, see you later. But it was right at him [the goalkeeper]. But great save from Hugo.”
