Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has hailed the change of mood around Old Trafford following his winner against West Ham on Sunday.

The England attacker scored a superb header late in the first half to give United all three points.

It was a 100th goal for Rashford in all competitions for United and continued both his and his club's recent upturn in form under Erik ten Hag.

"It's a complete different energy around the club and the training ground," Rashford told Sky Sports after the game.

"That puts me in a better headspace and I just feel really motivated now. That's the area I was struggling in."

And he added: "I get that it's your job to speak about what happens on the pitch but for the players we have to get into the right headspace for every game."

Rashford later thanked the United staff and all his team-mates past and present after reaching 100 goals for the club.

The 26-year-old had said before the game against West Ham that Ten Hag was "a joy to work with" and he appears to be reaping the benefits of the new era at Old Trafford.

United are now fifth in the table, three points behind third-placed Tottenham and with a game in hand over Antonio Conte's side.
