Stats suggest Marcus Rashford is just warming up

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford rightly gained plenty of praise for his performance during the emphatic win over Fulham.

The Englishman has been in fine form of late and repaid his manager’s faith by grabbing a goal in the 4-1 win at Old Trafford.

The attacker has often been accused of being inconsistent but seems to be hitting his stride of late and in good time.

Rashford’s usual competitor for the left wing spot Anthony Martial has also been putting in top shifts lately which has meant Jose Mourinho has had to shoehorn the duo into the same starting XI.

Nonetheless, supporters will be hoping the academy product can keep up his performances so that he becomes a mainstay in the team-sheet, particularly with Romelu Lukaku receiving all kinds of criticism.

It was important for Marcus to add assists to his game particularly since he’s featured mainly from the flanks so far this campaign.

Lukaku has normally been favoured to lead the line for United even though he suffered a tremendous dip in form.

The young star though needed to tailor his game in order to receive minutes elsewhere since he couldn’t get a consistent run as a striker for United.
