Manchester United are flying in the Premier League and their impressive form continued on Sunday afternoon as an in-form Leicester City side were comfortably dispatched at Old Trafford.
Erik ten Hag made five changes from the side that drew with Barcelona earlier this week but talisman Marcus Rashford started the game and to no surprise, it was the 25-year-old who would become the matchwinner.
Rashford scored two goals on either side of half-time, taking his tally for the season up to 24 goals, including 16 goals in his last 17 appearances in all competitions.
Speaking after the game, the unstoppable 25-year-old delivered his own reaction to the game, insisting he has no plans on slowing down after his latest show of class.
“Overall a good day. They created good opportunities and David made a great save at the end of the first half, without that we can’t go on to win the game,” Rashford told Sky Sports, via the BBC.
“It’s still early in the season, we’re fighting for a lot of different things and we have another big game in the week to hopefully go through to the next round of the Europa League and then a massive game for us [against Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final].
“I don’t feel like slowing down and always want to improve.”
Focus will now turn to Barcelona, with the La Liga leaders travelling to Manchester for the second leg of the round-of-32 Europe League play-off round.
Rashford scored United’s first goal in that game before forcing the second with a mazy dribble and he will need to be at his best once more on Thursday.
The biggest game of the season so far comes just three days later, however, when United face Newcastle in the final of the Carabao Cup.
Earlier this weekend, United’s chances were boosted after Nick Pope was suspended for the game. Newcastle’s reserve goalkeeper, Martin Dubravka, is ineligible to feature after already making two appearances in the tournament for United.
