Video: Marcus Rashford somehow misses open goal after devastating Man Utd counter-attack

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has somehow managed to miss an open-goal after a blistering counter-attack against Sheffield United.

Already leading 1-0 after an opener from Anthony Martial, United looked certain to extend their lead through Rashford.

The Reds carved the Blades wide open in a move which saw Martial played in on goal, opting to lay it off at the very last second for team-mate Rashford, it seemed harder to miss than it did to double the lead.

All the young forward had to do was make a decent connection with the ball and it would have been 2-0, the attacker somehow managed to get his feet muddled up and the ball eventually rolled wide of the mark.

Gary Neville couldn’t believe what he was seeing and said on commentary: “How has he missed that?”

United should have a 3-4 goal lead at Old Trafford and have more work to do if we’re to claim three points.
