How has Marcus Rashford fared against Liverpool in the past?

It is a great time to be a Manchester United fan as the Red Devils are doing incredibly well in all domestic and European competitions. 

Erik ten Hag’s side recently claimed their first silverware since 2017 in the Carabao Cup, beating Newcastle United in the final. 

They are also alive in the FA Cup following their 3-1 success over West Ham United at Old Trafford on Wednesday. 

The Hammers were in the ascendancy after Said Benrahma broke the deadlock in the second half.

However, late strikes from Alejandro Garnacho and Fred following an own-goal from Nayef Aguerd put United in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup. 

Marcus Rashford wasn’t part of the starting line-up against West Ham, but Ten Hag was forced to feature him in the second half after they conceded the first goal. 

However, the England international will return to the team against Liverpool on Sunday. 

How has Rashford fared against Liverpool in the past? 

The 25-year-old has played 14 matches against Liverpool, winning three, drawing six and losing five of those games.

He has registered six goals and contributed one assist against the Merseyside giants.

The talented forward was also on the scoresheet when the two sides met in August, playing a pivotal role in United’s 2-1 success at Old Trafford.

Rashford’s first-ever Premier League encounter against Liverpool came in 2016 when the match ended in a goalless draw. 

His best display against Jurgen Klopp’s side came at Old Trafford in 2018 when he scored a double to help United win 2-1. 

However, he has failed to score at Anfield, with all his six strikes coming at home.
