Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has heaped praise on Christian Eriksen for the impact he had in Manchester United’s 4-2 victory with Aston Villa.

Eriksen was subbed on in the 62nd minute, just after Villa had gone 2-1 up at Old Trafford and his presence helped spark Manchester United to victory.

“It’s the quality in the passes, the calmness, he’s a top player,” Rashford said.

“We’re always making runs at a high tempo. We need someone on the ball who can just slow it down and see the picture and play the passes.

“His [Eriksen’s] technical ability is the same as Bruno on the ball and we just have to give them options. We have to make runs and we have to have that belief that they’ll find us.

“I think we have had that this season, not very game it’s come off but the more times we make the options the more times it’s going to come off.”
