Why Rashford is the best since van Persie

Our no.10 netted for the first time since early April, as he latched on to Bruno Fernandes’s laser-accurate diagonal ball before arrowing the ball into the net, past the despairing dive of Fraser Forster.

The goal doubled our first-half advantage at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, after Rashford had earlier teed up Jadon Sancho for the opener in what was a key clash in the race for the Champions League places. The home side pegged us back after the break though, with goals from Pedro Porro and Heung-min Son ensuring it ended level.

Rashford’s goal was his 29th strike of a superb campaign – which was already his best on an individual level, beating the 22 he netted across all competitions in 2019/20.
