Manchester United fans were absolutely thrilled with Marcus Rashford‘s performance vs Newcastle United as he tore apart Steve Bruce’s men.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s stars won 4-1 in the end, with the talented Englishman netting a goal and assisting two himself to cap a fine display.

There were many doubts over Rashford starting the fixture as a striker as it hasn’t been a position he’s performed in too well in the past.

The academy graduate’s success last season was largely based on him coming off the left-wing to devastating effect.

However, he dismissed his critics with ease and showed just how much he’s grown as a player by putting in a thrilling performance as United’s out and out forward.

Marcus Rashford is 22 years of age and already one of the most complete wingers in the world.
