Marcus Rashford says Manchester United’s recent struggles have been “heartbreaking”, but he is optimistic they will bounce back from their latest setback.

United responded to their 6-1 humiliation against Tottenham by beating Newcastle, Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig, but they have been disappointing at home in the Premier League.

In their last two games against Old Trafford – against Chelsea and Arsenal – United have mustered just six shots on target, and they have already been beaten three times on home soil in the league.

“This is something I’ve been doing since I was a kid and something I love to do,” Rashford told United’s official website.

“For it to maybe not go as well as I planned it to be, it’s heartbreaking. I think it’s a period where we need to get back to basics and find ways to win games.”

“It’s been tough,” he added.”Obviously, we’ve had a lot of big games and games we need to get points in. It’s been a bit up and down but it’s like that sometimes.

“It’s been an alright month but, for now, it’s all about sticking together and finding a way to win games and really picking up the belief.

“We always bounce back when we don’t do so well and I think it’s another one of those times. We have to come together as a team, get back to the basics, and win games.”

Rashford and United gave a glimpse of their potential in the Champions League, as the England forward came off the bench to score a stunning hat-trick in a 5-0 win.

“It was obviously a proud moment, something you dream about as a kid,” he said.

“I was very happy about it but the result was obviously a big result for us in terms of qualification in the Champions League. We need to back that up in the next game and hopefully get another three points.
