Marcus Rashford, after his two-goal performance against Arsenal, says that starting the last two games for Manchester United has been a crazy experience, but he wants to continue the fairytale.

Rashford shocked at starts

Rashford made his debut on Thursday against FC Midtjylland when Anthony Martial was injured in the warm up and he took his chance, scoring a brace in the win. The forward then was thrown in to start his first Premier League game against Arsenal and once again was the hero, scoring two goals, and he has said that he was in shock about starting these games.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the victory over the Gunners, Rashford described the experience as "crazy," adding that "you can't explain it when you're out there."

Rashford hasn't taken long to know what United is all about in the big Premier League games.

Midweek game helped against Arsenal

When asked about was he surprised about getting this chance in the first team, the teenager said "it was a shock playing midweek," but the unexpectedness helped as it meant he was "not thinking about the game too much."

It is very likely that he wouldn't have got the chance to show what he could do if Martial and Wayne Rooney were fit, but he has certainly grabbed it with both hands.

Rashford has only this season started to play in the U21s and in the games that he has played he has been impressive. To be called up to the first team is another thing altogether though, with him getting his first taste in November when he was in the squad for the Watford game at Vicarage Road. Rashford now though has broken into the team and now it's up to him to keep up this fantastic start.

On the last two games, he said that it has been "amazing," but now it's about maintaining that form.

"To score two is a bonus so hopefully we just carry it on and go again in the next game," which is against Watford at Old Trafford on Wednesday night, and Rashford is set to start again if others don't recover from their injuries.
