Having been named the player of the month by Manchester United fans earlier this week, Marcus Rashford has now been named the Premier League Player of the Month. He becomes just the third United player, after Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Anthony Martial, to win the award since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.

It’s always good to pick up individual awards but I think the way we’ve performed as a team has been very good over the last few weeks. The aim for us now is to just continue it, but we have to take it game by game and one step at a time.

I think the consistency [is the most pleasing aspect of recent form]. I’ve always said that’s the difference between the best players in the world and good players. In football, the fact that you can repeat it time and time again, season upon season, is the big difference between the two categories of players. Consistency is something you always want to improve and, for a young player, it can be difficult but I think over the last two months we’ve got it right.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was named Premier League manager of the month for January too.
