Manchester United fans were delighted with Marcus Rashford‘s performance against Manchester City in the pre-season tour of America on Friday morning.
The Englishman has started the new season off in the perfect way, giving Jose Mourinho something to think about with his stunning performances so far, especially after scoring two goals against LA Galaxy earlier in the tour.
He was relishing the chance to play alongside new signing Romelu Lukaku, and the pair linked up incredibly well, giving Man United a 2-0 lead in the first-half following two great pieces of play.
Here’s what supporters had to say about his performance against Man City.
Rashford 🔥 🔥

He’s been in stunning form and it’s clear that he’s looking to play up front more often after being utilised out on the wing for the majority of last season with Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the line.
Rashford could have simply been pushed out far wide onto the wing once again after Lukaku arrived, but with Jose Mourinho opting to play the duo as more of a combination up front, it’s clear he believes the Englishman has the ability to perform, as he’s previously heavily backed him.
