Manchester United’s pre-season tour has kicked off. Jose Mourinho’s men took on the LA Galaxy in the StubHub Center, with the gaffer completely changing his starting XI at half-time. One of the names on the teamsheet was Marcus Rashford, who put in a stellar performance before being taken off.
Inside of two minutes, the Red Devils were given the lead by the young man from Wythenshawe, who coolly slotted home after capitalising on an error made by the LA back line.
Then, he had his second as the match moved on. It was another extremely cool finish after a nice move. He looks very sharp considering how early on in pre-season we are, and that definitely bodes well moving forward.
Perhaps he should be celebrating a hat-trick. Rashford timed a run in-behind the opposing defence superbly, but just couldn’t finish off the chance. I’m going to use that old cliche – he just had too much time to think about what he was going to do with it.
Although we’ve signed Romelu Lukaku, it certainly sends a message in Mourinho’s direction. He knows that Rashford can be relied upon, and the teenager will be looking to play after another excellent season last time around.
Anyway, we’ve compiled some of the best tweets aimed at the young man from the Manchester United faithful.
Have a look at the best tweets from the fans below:
Rashford is so sharp, never think this was his first game of pre season. And the pass by Herrera to Lingard in the build up.. 👌 #MatchdayMac

Rashford's not lost any pace with all that new muscle. Wow. Could be a massive season for him!

Rashford looks in such good shape, and with 2 goals already today, going to have a special season.

Easiest chance for Rashford and he blows the hat trick. Still work to do but as Meatloaf sang two out of three ain't bad

Marcus Rashford really need to work on his one on one chance finishing. Should've been a hat-trick for him that 1st half.
