Marcus Rashford is a man in form, being involved in both of Manchester United goals against Newcastle United on Wednesday.
The Mancunian youngster was the source of the free-kick that fresh substitute Romelu Lukaku netted in the second-half, and later on in the game, he deftly finished a superb Alexis Sanchez pass to secure the Red Devils all three points.
This was his third goal under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and the academy graduate has transformed into quite an entertaining performer for the Old Trafford outfit.
In fact, his antics have impressed so much, that club legend and pundit Gary Neville stated the following about him on Sky Sports: “Rashford playing up front has been fantastic, I love him to bits.”
The decorated full-back went on to add: “150 games at the age of 21, the potential is enormous, it’s actually stepping up beyond potential to where he’ll be a top-class player.
People will say about Romelu Lukaku and how’s he going to get back in the team, don’t worry about that, worry about the kid who is playing and is going to devastate teams. He was a massive problem all night and deservedly won man of the match, he was brilliant to watch.”
The man-of-the-match performance is one that holds solid promise to continue on for the rest of the season, and his showings against England have been similarly impressive.
Under Solskjaer, the forward has attained loads of freedom to perform in a clinical manner, and the fact that he both creates and scores goals is very indicative of the same.
First brought on by Louis van Gaal, the youngster was nurtured quite well under Jose Mourinho, being the player most used by the Portuguese tactician. However, under the tutelage of Solskjaer, Rashford may truly be unleashed into the player that Manchester United fans will be signing about for years to come.
