Manchester United returned to winning ways with a 3-0 victory over Colchester in the EFL Cup quarter finals.
Marcus Rashford opened the scoring for the home side in the second half which was followed by an error from Ryan Jackson leading to an own goal. Minutes later Rashford slotted a neat pass to Anthony Martial who did a good job netting the goal and securing progression to the semi finals.
The ensuing draw means that United will be pitted against Man City as England prepares for a second Manchester derby this campaign. The recent one ended 2-1 with United outperforming the Sky Blues and Rashford and Martial on the scoresheet.
This time around, Rashford is hyped yet again.

Rashford has been having a phenomenal campaign with his 14 goals so far the finest tally of his career. There is a clear hunger in him to keep up this performance and big games are the precise avenue to bring out the best in him.
The Cup is also an achievable piece of silverware for the Old Trafford outfit who will be looking to claim as many token accolades as they can from this transition season.
Will Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side emerge victorious yet again?
