Marcus Rashford has done it again!
The 25-year-old forward was the hero for Manchester United, powering them to a 3-1 victory against Everton in the FA Cup third round at Old Trafford on Friday evening.
The England international ensured a positive start for his team as he exposed Ben Godfrey on the wing before sending a dangerous ball towards the back post for Antony to slide in the opening goal.
It was his good footwork that resulted in United’s lead being restored, too. He sent the ball into the box early in the second half to catch Everton goal scorer Conor Coady off guard, resulting in an own goal from the defender.
Everton thought they had pulled level once again through Dominic Calvert-Lewin but VAR put an end to their celebrations. Rashford, as the architect of all of United’s good work, then put an end to any of the Toffees’ hopes of getting a draw when he finally got the goal he deserved, converting a late penalty to put the game beyond doubt.
United are now on a seven game winning run and Rashford has been pivotal to that, having scored in each of his last five matches for the club.
