Marcus Rashford was back to scoring ways for Manchester United during yesterday’s 2-2 Premier League against Tottenham Hotspur on the road.
The Red Devils made an ideal start at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium and found the back of the net after just seven minutes through Jadon Sancho.
Rashford grabbed the assist for the goal. The 25-year-old made it 2-0 for United shortly before the break after a stunning solo run on the counter-attack.
The Englishman got hold of possession in the centre circle. He managed to ward off the challenge from Eric Dier before beating Fraser Forster at his near post.
It seemed like United were on course for a fourth-straight league win but Spurs came back fighting in the second half to share the spoils on the night.
Despite this, Rashford should be appreciated for his display. He ended his mini three-match goal drought yesterday with his 29th goal of the campaign.
The Red Devils star could have done better with his close-range volley in the first half but overall, it was another top-class display from the club graduate.
Aside from his goal involvements, Rashford had 56 touches, completing 28 out of his 33 passes.
He won three take-ons and four duels while completing 100 per cent of his long balls (3/3).
Rashford has been hugely influential towards United’s top-four pursuit this term and he has a key part to play in the final seven games of the campaign.
The club are currently six points ahead of Tottenham and Aston Villa for the fourth spot with two games in hand but there is still plenty to play for.
They can’t afford to get complacent with the lead and must return to winning ways when an in-form Villa side visit Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
