Marcus Rashford says Manchester United did well to ‘dig themselves out of difficult situatuation’ as they came back from two goals down against Sheffield United to draw 3-3.

The home side looked comfortable and completely in control for the first 70 minutes of the game and 2-0 up, before the Red Devils were kick-started by a wonderful goal from 19-year-old Brandon Williams.

Five minutes later fellow teenager Mason Greenwood made it 2-2, before Rashford completed what looked to be an incredible comeback in the 79th minute to make it 3-2.

Only for Oli McBurnie to rescue a point for the Blades in the final minute of the match, but despite that, the United and England striker believes they’re learning as a team and did well to pull themselves back from 2-0 down.

"They were very compact but you need to have movement." Rashford told Sky Sports. "In the first half it wasn't good enough from us, but we managed to recognise it and get back into game and good position.

"It happened at Everton - 2-0 down and we lost 4-0, but it shows we're improving and learning.

"The manager knows when we play on front foot we're a good team. The three goals is the response we managed to give.

"We have to keep pushing though - if we kept going then perhaps we would have got the win.

"Obviously a tough game for both teams. When you go 3-2 up you feel hard done by. But we were in a difficult situation and dug out of it."

Manchester United move up a place to 9th in the Premier League table, but remain nine points adrift of the top four, while Sheffield United move up to 6th.
