Marcus Rashford makes his 250th appearance for Manchester United tonight, in an FA Cup fifth-round tie at home against West Ham.
The England international will be hoping to mark the occasion with a goal against his former manager’s side, with David Moyes taking his West Ham team to Old Trafford with the Red Devils in good form.
Of course, Rashford is not the only United forward to be making his 250th appearance for the club tonight. The same milestone is being marked by Anthony Martial who is another in need of a goalscoring run.
Rashford marks the milestone already being the fourth youngest player to make 250 appearances for the club, aged 23 years and 101 days, as per @OptaJoe — behind legends such as Norman Whiteside, George Best and Ryan Giggs.
Moyes will be onto his players before kick-off warning them to stick tight to Rashford because if he can break into space he’s going to have opportunities on goal.

Rashford is one of the key players in this United side and there’s a lot of responsibility on his shoulders tonight, but with 250 appearances under his belt he should be able to lead by example.
I’m predicting a goal or two tonight from Rashy!
