(Watch) Rashford misses sitter from close range miss against Astana

Manchester United have started well against FK Astana but the match remains goalless.

We are still in the opening stages of the match but the Red Devils should be a goal ahead after Marcus Rashford’s close range effort on goal.

Rashford has a chance this season to make a real statement in the team, knowing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s hasn’t many options up front to select from following Romelu Lukaku’s departure.
