Manchester United fans were delighted with Marcus Rashford‘s brilliant performance in the 4-0 victory over Reading in the FA Cup third round.
The Englishman had missed many chances in the first-half, but worked extremely hard throughout the entire game to get the ball forward into dangerous positions.
He was then rewarded for his hard work with two goals in four minutes in the second-half, as he kept his composure to find the back of the net past Reading goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his wonderful display.
Rashford deserved that goal. He's missed a few but doesn't go hiding. Keeps on getting in the right positions + looks dangerous. #Mufc

He found his first goal for Man United since September 2016, but has been a complete nightmare for any team he faces as he stretches the opposition, playing against defenders with pace and a direct style.
It’s hard to believe the 19-year-old is only at the start of his career at Old Trafford, he already looks like a complete player for United and it’s brilliant to know that he’ll only improve as he continues to develop.
Rashford has consistently worked hard for United and there’s no doubt that his brace against Reading will be a massive confidence boost moving forward.
