Manchester United picked up all three points on Wednesday night against Spurs and it was Marcus Rashford who stepped up to be the hero of the match.
Marcus Rashford opened the scoring in the 6th minute of the match and from that point onwards, there was no turning back for the England international.
United went into half-time with a scoreline of 1-1 but within four minutes of the match restarting, Rashford won and converted a penalty, thereby restoring the lead for the home side.
Man United ended up winning the game 2-1 but Marcus could very easily have picked up a hattrick during the night had it not been for some decent saves from Spurs keeper Gazzaniga.
So naturally speaking after the game, Solskjaer was all praise of Marcus Rashford and he even went on to compare the forward with the likes of Ryan Giggs and Andrei Kanchelskis.
The manager said in his post-match press conference: “Marcus was absolutely outstanding – the best performance he’s had during the year I’ve been here. He was strong, direct, taking people on, inside and outside with no fear.
“That’s what we want – we want to see boys enjoying themselves. That’s what the Stretford End want to see.
“That’s what he’s been brought up on: seeing [Ryan] Giggsy or [Andrei] Kanchelskis – actually, maybe he’s too young for Kanchelskis – but that says everything about the boy and the potential. He’ll be excellent.
“He’s played all the games more or less this season.
“The boy’s getting fitter and fitter and more and more experienced – what a performance! Two goals, creates them himself, could’ve, should’ve had two more, there were great saves by the keeper.
“A free-kick that is going in all the way, but just at the end it curls outside. So, it was a fantastic performance by the boy.”
So far this season, Marcus Rashford has played in 20 Premier League games for Man United and has managed to score 12 goals along with 4 assists which clearly goes on to show that he’s in the form of his life.
And the United fans will be hoping he can carry this form into the Manchester Derby.
