Manchester United's drive to move up the table was aided by the arrival of Edinson Cavani, the all-time top scorer at Paris Saint-Germain, on the deadline day.
The trip to St. James' Park comes too early for the Uruguayan. Cavani is spending the last day of his isolation after his trip from France, but Rashford appreciates the competition and the quality of United's new signing.
Speaking about the new recruit as cited by Sports Central, Rashford said: "As a forward line [the arrival of Cavani] is something to look forward to. "Hopefully he comes in and scores goals, because he can definitely help us win games and points. "He can be a massive player for us this season. To win two or three trophies in a season you need a squad, it's not possible if you don't have people who can score goals one week and the next week, it's just not possible without three or four forwards in a team.
He added: "Growing up, Manchester United always had four or five forwards who could score goals at any time. The closer we get to that, the more strength we'll have.".
