Manchester United fans were delighted with Marcus Rashford‘s performance against Manchester City at the Etihad.
The Englishman had been playing on the right-hand side and produced a great performance, continuously running in behind Pep Guardiola’s defence, getting the ball forward and creating chances.
He got the crowd excited when he completed an incredible flick around Nicolas Otamendi out wide, leaving the Argentine behind as Rashford had been giving him problems throughout the whole night.
Here’s what supporters on social media had to say about his performance

Rashford is going to be unreal in a few years. Pace + Technique + Attitude.

He’s been brilliant at United this season and with Zlatan Ibrahimovic now set to be sidelined for the next 12 months, he’ll has a massive role to play in the side under Mourinho.
There’s no doubt that Rashford should be playing in the central role as he’s proven he has what it takes to cause the opposition problems, and although he has performed out well out wide, his skillset ultimately rests down the middle.
Playing on the wing has introduced a new dynamic to his game and it’s scary to think about how good he can go on to become as he’s still only at the start of his career at the age of 19.
