Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford enjoys superb display against Aston Villa

by Ben Topliss

Marcus Rashford enjoyed a superb afternoon’s work in the 1-0 win against Aston Villa on Saturday and his fairytale at Manchester United is showing no signs of slowing down.

Rashford’s movement and intelligence caused Villa numerous problems and he eventually bagged Man United’s winner when he finished off Antonio Valencia’s cross.

The 18-year-old, who also struck against West Ham United in the FA Cup earlier this week, is earning positive reviews for his performances and the stats show you why:

United have millions of pounds worth of talent at their disposal but it is a homegrown Mancunian who has been the shining light for the team in recent months.

Louis van Gaal has taken his fair share of flak this term, and rightly so, but he deserves credit for unearthing Rashford and placing faith in him. The future is certainly a bright one at Old Trafford.
