Marcus Rashford is feeling “in the best form he’s ever been” after another superb performance in Manchester United’s FA Cup win over Everton.

Having scored in his last four games, Rashford looked like a man of confidence as he ripped through Everton’s defense on Friday and was involved in all three goals as United beat the Toffees 3-1.

He set up Antony for the opener just four minutes later and although Conor Coady equalized for Everton, Rashford’s dazzling work on the left wing forced the Everton defender to turn into his own net to thwart United in the second Leading 2-1 at half time.

Rashford then capped his brilliant performance with a late penalty after Alejandro Garnacho was brought down by Ben Godfrey, becoming the first United player since Wayne Rooney in 2012 to score in seven straight home games in all competitions.

After leading United to the fourth round, Rashford believes he is nearing the peak of his powers, telling ITV: “That’s probably the best thing I’ve ever been.

“I feel good on the pitch and getting into positions and areas to score goals. If they keep creating chances I feel like I’ll keep scoring in the minute.”

Manager Erik ten Hag is enjoying a strong start to his Old Trafford career and his team continue to struggle on all four fronts as he seeks to finish his maiden season with a silver medal.

Rashford says United have their sights set firmly on winning trophies, declaring: “That’s the aim. That’s why we do what we do and work so hard.

“We want to be in the final and play in the biggest games. Ultimately, we want to win silverware and trophies, so hopefully we’ll get the chance to do that this season.

“It’s always nice to progress in cup games and the FA Cup is definitely a special competition.

“We’re happy to be able to advance to the next round and more importantly we keep the momentum and keep winning games.”

In stark contrast to United’s pursuit of glory, success for Everton may simply lie in staying in the Premier League after suffering six defeats in seven games in all competitions.

Manager Frank Lampard appeared to be staring into the water after his side were beaten 4-1 by Brighton and Hove Albion on Tuesday, but an improved performance against United, albeit in a defeat, has given the former Chelsea man hope that he can turn things around.

Citing Rashford as key to the result, Lampard said: “The players were very, very good. We had better chances.

“Marcus Rashford was probably the difference between the two teams because top individual talent can do that to you.”

With a big league game with fellow contenders Southampton next for Everton, Lampard was asked if he expected to be in the dugout, to which he replied: “It’s not under my control. It’s not my place to focus on that.

“This league can change very quickly and when you’re in tough times you have to work really hard to get out of there and the picture can change. My focus is on this team and getting a result against Southampton.”
