Manchester United fans were delighted with Marcus Rashford‘s performance against Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The Englishman is incredibly talented and was constantly giving the Middlesbrough defence a hard time as he got the ball forward, took players on and utilised his pace to keep the backline further back as they tried to anticipate his next move, which in turn opened up more space for Man United.
He’s been performing well in Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s absence as he’s looked like a threat each time he’s on the ball and it’s brilliant to see the 19-year-old progress his overall game since last season.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance.
Rashford is a 19 year old ripping apart a Premier League team but rather than enjoy it people focus on negatives. Why bother watching?

His finishing will come but Rashford is electric in this form. Such a threat. Gives us a new dimension

Rashford ought to have scored in his last two games, but his pace gives United's passers more options, and opposing defenders more problems.

The curse of modern football means Rashford is expected to finish every chance he gets.He is 19 for crying out loud #HeWillOnlyGetBetter

Marcus Rashford makes it look so easy, beats him man every single time. He's the future of this club and I fully expect him to flourish…

Rashford is gold.

While he may not be scoring goals each week, Rashford has proven he has more to offer the team and it’s scary to think about how good he can go on to become with guidance from Jose Mourinho and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
He has what it takes to the lead the line for the next decade at Old Trafford and if he’s performing this well at the start of his career, it’s great to know it’ll only get better.
