Man Utd: Marcus Rashford turned on the style in friendly vs West Brom

Rashford in action vs West Brom

Manchester United fans are understandably excited and optimistic about the return of Premier League football.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were showing signs of improvement prior to the season being suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

United’s 2-0 win over Manchester City in their last Premier League fixture was one of the squad’s best performances under Solskjaer.

Now, the Red Devils will be buoyed by the return of two key players for the restart of the 2019/20 season; Paul Pogba and – more importantly – Marcus Rashford.

Rashford’s season was cruelly halted by a back injury earlier in the year, but the England striker is now back fully fit in what is a major boost to United’s Champions League qualification ambitions.

The 22-year-old got some much-needed game time in the two friendly matches against West Brom yesterday and footage of the fleet-footed striker is currently attracting A LOT of attention on social media.

Have a look at the clips for yourself below.

Rashford looks very, very sharp.

In the first clip, United’s leading goal scorer this season leaves a West Brom defender for dead with a skill move that’s still difficult to work out even after a second and third viewing – shades of Ronaldinho from Rashford.

The second snippet of footage shows two instances of the United academy product wreaking havoc in the opposition’s box with his quick-feet and low centre of gravity.

Keep your eyes peeled for a sensational goal-line clearance from the Baggies as well!

To cap off the footage, Rashford plays a delightful through ball to help win United a penalty, which Bruno Fernandes duly dispatches.

Yes, it’s only a friendly and yes, it’s only West Bromwich Albion.

But after so many months out injured, you can’t help but feel that Rashford – with his copious amounts of natural talent – is returning as a man on a mission.

Premier League defenders, beware!
