Player to watch – Marcus Rashford

Marcus Rashford hasn't enjoyed the best of seasons in a Man Utd shirt but his form has improved of late and that will surely benefit Erk ten Hag and his inconsistent side.

Rashford has netted seven league goals, making him the club's joint-top scorer alongside Scott McTominay and Ramus Hojlund.

Back in form after a slow start to the season

The 26-year-old has scored in each of his last three appearances for the Red Devils but failed to score in either of England's friendly matches last week. With Rashford back amongst the goals, United carry much more of a threat going forward and the forward will be aiming to reach double figures before the domestic season comes to a close.
