Marcus Rashford marked his 100th Premier League appearance with a winning goal for Manchester United over Leicester City.
The England international started the game part of a trio attack featuring Alexis Sanchez and Jesse Lingard.
United opened the scoring after 8 minutes when Paul Pogba won back possession and quickly found Rashford with an over the top pass.

Leicester weren’t ready for United to pounce so quickly and the one goal proved to be enough to guarantee the Reds all three points.
But Pogba deserves credit for the form he’s shown over the past month and continues to provide the goods.
Rashford spoke about his French teammate after the win, praising him for setting up so many opportunities for other United players.
Popular MUFC Twitter account @utdextra quoted Rashford from his post-match interview with Sky Sports.
Rashford: “Time and time again he (Pogba) provides opportunities for the team, that’s what we want, if we can get him free he’ll make these passes all day long.” #mufc [Sky]
