Marcus Rashford insists he is fully fit ahead of Manchester United’s return to Premier League action with a trip to Tottenham on June 19 (MEN).

The player told Stretty News: “I think coming out of this lockdown we are in a much stronger position than we were going into it.

“I think we just need to take each game as it comes and not get too ahead of ourselves. We are working hard in training, gelling as a team with players coming back from injury, etc.

“For me personally I felt I was having my best season to date before the injury-hit so now I’m back fully fit I’m determined to push on.”

The 22-year-old has been out injured since January, but the postponement of the Premier League season due to the coronavirus pandemic has unexpectedly granted him a chance to take to the pitch once again this season.

The two sides meet as the race for a top-four spot heats up, with United in fifth place and Spurs trailing them by four points (Premier League).

United handed their former manager, Jose Mourinho, his first defeat as Spurs manager back in December (BBC).

In that defeat away at Old Trafford, Rashford netted twice as United ended Mourinho’s three-game unbeaten streak.

Rashford had been enjoying a rich vein of form until his injury as the Englishman bagged 19 goals in 31 appearances across all competitions (Transfermarkt).

Spurs Web Opinion

Marcus Rashford proved a huge problem for Spurs in December. Without doubt, he was their biggest threat and, with the arrival of Bruno Fernandes, United have only become stronger. With Rashford back and potentially Paul Pogba, this has the potential to be a huge game.
