‘Hero!’ – Manchester United fans go wild after Marcus Rashford winner vs Man City

Just four minutes after Bruno Fernandes had cancelled out Jack Grealish&aposs opener to bring United level, Erik ten Hag&aposs side turned the game on its head when Rashford stabbed the ball home from close range. The academy graduate connected with substitute Alejandro Garnacho&aposs low centre to grab his 16th goal of the campaign.

United had their tails up after Fernandes&apos leveller and sniffed blood. Garnacho showed tremendous skill and vision to pick out Rashford in the middle, leaving him with the relatively simple task of poking the ball home.

It marked the ninth home game in a row that he had scored in, but it was by far his most important contribution in that run. It sparked wild scenes in the stands and on the touchline, as Ten Hag jumped for joy.

Unsurprisingly, it also sent United&aposs supporters watching on TV into a frenzy, too. They hailed Rashford and his sensational run of form on social media.
