Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford assured fans that the team were set to go all out to get a vital three points against title chasing Manchester City on Wednesday night.

United still have some vague chance of making the Champions League next season thanks to Arsenal, Chelsea and Spurs failed to win over the weekend.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer called for a response from his team in what is now the biggest game of their season in his pre-match press conference and Rashford assured fans the players were committed to delivering exactly that.

“United versus City and United versus Liverpool mean the most to every United player and every United fan,” Rashford told United Review.

“But, as a player, you have to understand that every game in the league is for three points and, whether you’re playing against Everton or Chelsea, they all have the exact same importance as when you play City or Liverpool. It’s the emotions which are a bit different.

“I know the fans are always emotionally attached to this game, like we are, and I’d just say always keep that feeling and we’ll do our best to get the three points.”

Rashford has fond memories if this fixture stretching back to his first derby appearance, three years ago when he netted the winner at the Etihad.

“It was a great feeling,” Rashford said of that day. “At the time of the goal, the game was quite open. They had a few more clear-cut chances and I think that was probably our first proper chance and we took it.

“When you go 1-0 up in the big games, you then have to control the game differently, and in that game we did it perfectly.”

While the Old Trafford faithful might have mixed feelings about a result that could help Liverpool end their Premier League title drought, for the players tonight is about attempting to secure a place in the Champions League next season.
