Marcus Rashford has scored his 11th goal in the Premier League this season with a header against Leeds United.
Manchester United currently trail 2-1 against historic rivals Leeds United and it looks like we could be in for a dramatic end at Old Trafford.
Gronto opened the scoring for Leeds in the first minute and they went in at half-time with a one-goal lead. That was before Raphael Varane kicked the ball into his own net just three minutes into the second half.
That means United faced an uphill climb to get anything from tonight’s game but at least Rashford’s goal gives us some hope.
Diogo Dalot crossed the ball in after receiving a backward pass from Facundo Pellistri. The Portuguese full-back found Rashford inside the box and he headed home.
Marcus Rashford scores AGAIN!
That's his sixth straight home Premier League match with a goal.

How ironic is it that we’ve only started crossing the ball into the box after Wout Weghorst was substituted?
Hopefully United can score again before the last 10 minutes. That way we could still take three points from this game.
