A section of Manchester United fans have heaped praise on the performance of Marcus Rashford during the club’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on the road on Thursday night.
The Red Devils did not have the best of games at Selhurst Park, but Marcus Rashford gave them a 1-0 lead at the break after showing terrific composure in the box to beat two defenders to find the net.
In the second half, it was a similar pattern at the beginning with United lacking the control over the game and Palace appeared to have equalised in the 55th minute before the goal was chalked off by VAR with a very close offside call.
United doubled the advantage in the 78th minute through Anthony Martial, but the goal was created by Rashford. The England international managed to escape three Palace players in a tight space at the halfway mark.
He thereafter combined with Bruno Fernandes before laying the pass which contributed to Martial’s 22nd goal of the campaign. His goal and assist has definitely pleased a number of fans.
Similar to Martial, Rashford bagged his 22nd goal of the season. The victory has taken United to within goal difference of fourth-placed Leicester City with another two games to play.
The Mancunian giants will be in action against Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final on Sunday. It will be interesting to see whether they can beat the Blues for the fourth occasion this term to progress to the final.
