Manchester United’s stoppage time hero Marcus Rashford has dismissed claims his winning goal against West Ham United on Saturday was offside.

Rashford came on as a substitute to score the late goal in a match that looked destined to end goalless.

Hammers boss David Moyes was furious at the decision, claiming Cavani was offside in the build-up, but the goal survived a VAR check to give Manchester United all three points.

After the game against Sky Sports, Rashford said he knew it wasn’t an offside.

“I knew it wasn’t (offside) from Edi (Cavani) to me, and I don’t think it was from Anthony (Martial) to Edi.

“Before then, I was just trying to get in the back post.

“It felt like a good cause and luckily it stayed.”

The goal will be a welcome boost for Rashford, who has endured a difficult form.

In his 17 appearances in all competitions this season, United’s number 10 has scored just five goals.

He was criticized by United fans during their FA Cup win over Aston Villa, but Ralf Ragnick has vowed to stand by the English forward.

Rashford told the BBC it was “a great feeling” to score so late.

“Obviously it’s an important goal and being so late is a great feeling”

“We have to use that winning feeling. We could have been a little better on the ball, but we scored the goal we needed and can now use that as motivation.

“When there are two teams so close to each other in the table, both are fighting to be in front of each other and today we managed to get there.

“We’re fourth now, some teams still have games to play, but it’s nice to be in that position.

“The wins are the most important, when you win, consecutive wins, you can really start running and that gives everyone confidence.

“We’ve had a difficult week, many games have been played in one week, so the break is necessary. It will be good for us.’
