Marcus Rashford says there will be no let-up from Manchester United’s free-scoring strikers, who are hungry for more goals.
United trio Rashford, Anthony Martial and teenage sensation Mason Greenwood have plundered a collective haul of 55 goals this season.
That is three more than the famed front three of newly-crowned champions Liverpool, Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, widely regarded as the best attacking trio in Europe.
United’s goal return is even more impressive considering Rashford and Martial have both endured two months out due to injury, while Greenwood has been used sparingly in his first full season.
England star Rashford, who has 20 goals this term along with Martial, insists United’s front three are determined to add to their haul, with Ole Gunnar Solskajer’s side fighting on three fronts.
United have five games left in the Premier League and potentially six more in the FA Cup and Europa League, giving their forwards plenty of opportunities to add to their totals.
“It’s been brilliant,” said Rashford. “There are still plenty more games to go – five in the league and then there’s the Europa League and FA Cup.
“There’s plenty of games to go and if we keep doing what we’ve been doing, the numbers could be – well, we don’t know what the numbers could be come the end of it.
“We just keep working hard and be ruthless. We need that if we want to keep scoring goals.”
United are currently on a 16-game unbeaten run in all competitions, since losing 2-0 at home to Burnley in the Premier League on January 22.
In that run, United have scored 43 goals and conceded just six, proof Solskjaer has them heading in the right direction after a turbulent first full season in charge.
“Confidence is high but I would say the focus is higher than the confidence,” Rashford told MUTV.
“The focus is: this game is only going one way and we’re going to win and take the three points home. The opponent, it doesn’t matter.
“I feel like we’ve taken that responsibility onto ourselves to better the last performance. If we keep doing that then you get results like we did with five goals [against Bournemouth ].
“We could have relaxed when it was 3-1. The second-half, they got an early goal, but we reacted straight away. That’s the thing that’s good for me – the reaction.
“Mistakes happen in football, every minute mistakes happen, but it’s how you react from those mistakes that’s the good thing.”
Rashford, Greenwood and Martial all scored in Saturday’s 5-2 win over Bournemouth, the latter producing the game’s finest goal with a sublime 27-yard curling finish.
“We expect this from Anthony,” said Rashford. “His quality is unbelievable. He’s shown it time and time again this season.
“You see with special goals like that, it takes a special player to score it and that’s what we have in this team.”
