Marcus Rashford has once again emulated Wayne Rooney’s exploits with his latest goal at Old Trafford for Manchester United.
The England international striker has equaled, before bettering, the feat of the Red Devils’ all-time top scorer earlier this season by scoring in nine consecutive home matches. The 25-year-old has found the net in his last six Premier League outings at Manchester, becoming the first man to achieve this feat since Rooney in April 2012.
Rashford is on fire
Cristiano Ronaldo and Ruud van Nistelrooy have only managed to score six times in a row at home, in all competitions, during their respective visits to Old Trafford. Rashford, who has 20 goals this season, has therefore managed to eclipse the efforts of a few club legends.
Rashford’s last goal came in the 2-2 draw with Leeds, where the Red Devils came back from two goals down to share the victory and cement their third place in the Premier League table.
