Manchester United got their much-needed triumph last Saturday, when they won 4-1 against Newcastle after the return of a few key players.
The whole squad performed well against Rafael Benítez’s side, with Paul Pogba netting a goal right after returning from his injury.
However, the goal was enabled by a key assist from Marcus Rashford, which was brilliant on its own, with the build-up being exceptional. However, it couldn’t lure much attention.
Romelu Lukaku, who in due course sealed the match by scoring his side’s fourth and final goal, carried the ball with Rashford, and Pogba running behind the Belgian striker.
The English international then sprinted into the box with godly pace, ridiculously covering 50 yards in 4 seconds in the process. The young forward then aided the Frenchman to score United’s third goal by nodding Lukaku’s cross in the midfielder’s path.

It was undoubtedly followed by numerous reactions on Twitter, all in the favour of the talented player.
Also to be able to cushion a perfect header to set up Pogba. Most of us would be hands on knees after running that fast . He's a exceptional young man . When people compare Rashford and Martial they are totally different types of players. Both brilliant in there own way. pic.twitter.com/C0Mps2Ygew

Some expressed their delight in people other than them spotting the great run of the starlet.
I'm happy someone else on earth saw this.
You've got to applaud Marcus Rashford's vision & lung bursting run into Newcastle's box for our 3rd goal. The kid just appeared from nowhere to make that assist for Pogba. https://t.co/hik5Ci1ytZ

Regardless, this is evidently not the first time the Englishman has showcased his speed and talent. He has even acquired Jose Mourinho’s complete trust, consequently spending more time on the pitch rather than on the bench.
With more years left on the 20-year-old’s contract, the Red Devils’ supporters are yearning to watch more of their prized asset in action.
