Marcus Rashford scored his 21st goal of the season in Manchester United’s win against Leeds.

Rashford broke the deadlock at Elland Road with a powerful header to knock in a cross from Luke Shaw.

The England striker was voted as Manchester United’s man of the match by supporters, with his goal followed by by Alejandro Garnacho who sealed a 2-0 victory.

The win saw Manchester United gain on league leaders Arsenal, who could only draw at home to Brentford a day earlier.

Reaction to Rashford

Marcus Rashford sent a short message out on Instagram celebrating the ‘important win’ as United made it two victories from the past three league games.

He was deluged with responses, including one from former Manchester United teammate Jesse Lingard, who hailed Rashford as ‘different gravy’.

Rashford was praised on MUTV by former United trainee Danny Simpson, who said: “He’s added everything to his game. He looks looks so powerful now when he’s going up for headers.

“Them two [Shaw and Rashford] have been combining really well together and it was a great goal.”

Rashford is full of confidence right now and he will be desperate to make a statement at the Nou Camp when Manchester United take on Barcelona in the Europa League this week.

The United striker is clear as the club’s leading goalscorer this season with 21, more than next placed Bruno Fernandes (7), Anthony Martial (6) and Antony (5) combined.
