Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford displayed his finest form yet as he leads United’s resurgence, taking his goal tally to 24 for the season, scoring in both halves against Leicester at Old Trafford on Sunday February 19. Marcus, who was raised by Jamaican and Kittitian parents made the two clinical finishes, latching on to passes from Bruno Fernandes and Fred in the 25th and 56th minutes before bearing down on goal and coolly slotting past the goalkeeper, Danny Ward.

Substitute winger Jadon Sancho finished off a fine team move in the 60th minute to seal Leicester City’s fate and securing the maximum 3  points for his team and coach Erik ten Hag side.

Although Manchester came out on top brilliantly, it was Leicester who created the better chances when the game was scoreless. However, it was their failure to convert that sealed their doom. The skipper from Spain, goalkeeper David de Gea, made a stunning reflex save to deny Harvey Barnes from close range and kept out Kelechi Iheanacho’s diving header with another superb stop.

Today’s defeat ended Leicester’s three-game unbeaten streak and their inconsistent

Marcus’ goals had the hallmarks of a player full of confidence, striking target on two occasions. He could easily have had a hat-trick when he beat two defenders but then drilled his shot straight at the goalkeeper.

United’s aim at the start of the season would have been a return to the Champions League and they are well on their way to achieving that, sitting in the third spot in the table and eight points clear of New Castle United in fifth place.
