Manchester United were absolutely superb on the counter attack yesterday, and a large part of that was down to Marcus Rashford’s pace and directness. Later that evening, Match of the Day pundit Danny Murphy compared him to one of the best strikers in the Premier League.
“Rashford’s goal was a type of goal you expect to see from a striker of Aguero’s calibre.” Danny Murphy said.
This is certainly high praise indeed from the former Liverpool man, and you can see exactly where he is coming from. The way Rashford glided past Demichelis was a superb bit of brilliance from the young man, and the finish was equally as good.
Rashford has had a whirlwind start to his senior Manchester United career and it has been brilliant to witness, and now its up to the young man to keep working hard to stay there. The talent is there no doubt, and if he continues like this he could go on to be an Old Trafford great.
