(Video) Marcus Rashford scores brace to double Man United lead vs Leicester

Manchester United are on their way to pulling eight points clear of fourth-placed Newcastle United as a double from Marcus Rashford sets Erik ten Hag’s men on their way.

Leicester made the trip to Old Trafford in terrific form and were close to taking the lead in the first half but a stunning save from David de Gea denied them.

Moments later, Rashford scored his 23rd goal of the season to give his side the lead and after the interval, the 25-year-old continued his amazing form by scoring a second goal, as seen below.

Rashford was brilliantly found by Fred and slotted the ball past Danny Ward. At first, the goal was disallowed but after a lengthy VAR check, the strike was confirmed.

Rashford has now scored 16 goals in his last 17 appearances – a remarkable run of form he will be hoping to extend further.
