Marcus Rashford’s winner in the Manchester derby only strengthens my belief that he is in the form of his career under Erik ten Hag.
In terms of goalscoring, Rashford has never produced anything like what he is doing now, and the manager deserves a lot of credit for that.
The 25-year-old is well on course to beat his record of 22 goals from the 2019/20 season with 16 goals to his name already this time out.
From the alternative angle of Rashford’s match-winner, as seen below, you can see the amount of space he found inside the box.
I never get bored of capturing moments like this 🤳❤️ #MUFC

Moreover, Alejandro Garnacho did well to become the youngest player to record an assist in a Manchester derby.
