Manchester United Football Club picked up an absolutely huge result at the weekend, with Jose Mourinho’s men getting one over on Chelsea. The game finished 2-0 and honestly, the result was more than deserved. We were the better team from the first minute to last and the three points was great.
Marcus Rashford started as the striker, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic dropping down to the bench to my surprise. However, you have to say that the young Mancunian took his chance absolutely superbly and he more than deserves all the praise that is coming his way.
It’s not just Manchester United fans that adore the 19-year-old either, with Gary Lineker taking to social media to confess that Rashford is a ‘special player’ with a ‘wonderful future’.
Brilliant display from a 19 year old with a wonderful future. Marcus Rashford is special.

It really was the complete performance from Rashford. He led the line brilliantly, scored the opening goal and he literally ran David Luiz and Gary Cahill ragged for 90 minutes. It’s wonderful to see him getting praise from such a world class striker in his own right in the form of Lineker, and it can only be a good thing for our striker’s confidence.
Manchester United do have a real star on their hands, and you also have to say that Rashford could work wonders for his country in the future, too. For now, though, let’s just enjoy watching him play because he really is an absolute delight.
