“He can absolutely destroy you!” Steven Gerrard names the Man United star defenders hate to come up against

Steven Gerrard has heaped praise on Marcus Rashford, claiming he is one player “you don’t want to come up against”.

The Manchester United youngster has gone from strength to strength at his boyhood club this season, and has made 24 appearances in all competitons.

He’s also netted eight times – most recently in Manchester United’s 2-1 win over CSKA Moscow in the Champions League.

And Liverpool legend Gerrard believes the 20-year-old has the ability to “destroy” any defender in world football.

“I love how direct he is. When he smells blood he just goes right at defenders and with that pace he plays to his strengths,” he said on BT Sport.

“If you’re a defender in that position he’s one player you don’t want to come up against, especially when he gets you in a wide area in a one-v-one, he can absolutely destroy you.”

The Red Devils went a goal behind against the Russian giants at Old Trafford on Tuesday through Victor Vinicius Coelho dos Santos.

But they hit back after the break through Romelu Lukaku, who netted in 64 minutes, before Rashford secured the three points 120 seconds later.
