Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford faced the Premier League cameras to take part in a short Q&A, and revealed a surprising choice in answer when asked for his opinion on the toughest Premier League ground.

The 19-year-old faced a number of questions, and while most of his answers won't cause a storm, there was one answer that stood out.

When asked which ground he'd found toughest to visit, he revealed that it was The Hawthornes, home of West Bromwich Albion, that stuck in his mind the most.

The England international said that a combination of West Brom's tough style of play, coupled with the noise made by the home support, made it tough for him to play his best football.

Albion ended up winning the game 1-0, thanks to a goal from Venezuelan striker Salomon Rondon. The match also saw the club lose Juan Mata to an uncharacteristic red card.

"West Brom away was a difficult ground for me to play at last season," he said.

"Obviously the style of football that they played as well – with the fans – I think they were just always getting on top of us."

"It was difficult to get into the game." 

Elsewhere, Rashford also explained who his Premier League idols were while growing up and cited current United teammate Wayne Rooney as one, with former Red Devils favourite Cristiano Ronaldo as the other.

And when asked what his favourite Premier League goal was, he looked no further than Old Trafford again, saying Wayne Rooney's overhead kick against cross-town rival Manchester City as his winner.

When asked what was so special about that goal, he simply replied: "It was against City".
