Marcus Rashford continued his remarkable goalscoring form as Manchester United cruised to a 3-0 Premier League win over Leicester City.

The England international’s double made it six goals in seven games, with Jadon Sancho also on target to round off the victory.

Despite a slow start by United, Rashford’s clinical finish from a superb Bruno Fernandes pass set them on their way, with the Red Devils never looking back.

The second goal arrived in the 56th minute, with Rashford the scorer once again, this time finishing off a well-worked move involving Fred. Leicester’s defense was caught napping, and Rashford made no mistake.

Sancho then put the game to bed, capitalizing on a superb pass from Fernandes to slot home from close range. It was a convincing performance from United, who can now look forward to their Europa League clash with Barcelona and the EFL Cup final against Newcastle United.

With just five points separating them from leaders Arsenal, Manchester United are showing that they are serious title contenders. With Rashford in such fine form, they will be confident of continuing their good run of results and challenging for silverware at the end of the season.
