Manchester United supporters were disappointed by the performance of Marcus Rashford during Saturday’s 2-2 draw versus Leicester City in the Premier League. Jose Mourinho’s side went behind courtesy of a Jamie Vardy opener, but Juan Mata put United in the ascendancy with a goal in either half. Ultimately, they had to settle for only a draw after Harry Maguire popped up with a headed goal at the very end.
Anthony Martial, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford were guilty of missing clear-cut chances during the course of the game, but the fans were critical over the showing of the latter, in particular, after he failed to pass the ball to Romelu Lukaku to put United 3-1 up in injury time.
Martial and Lingard missed key chances? Yeah but they played well. Rashford had one of the worst performances I’ve ever seen. Braindead player

Rashford came on, played 15 minutes without a marker and made a terrible decision every single time.

Dear Manchester City and Chelsea fans.
I am so sorry that we compared Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera to Gabriel Jesus and N’golo Kanté.
From all United fans.

That Rashford delay when Lukaku was free and unmarked to kill the game in the dying minute. We don't deserve to win anything with that shit mentality.

Marcus rashford is closer to welbeck than he is to mbappe. Keep rashfords name away from mbappe.

Rashford has had a couple of average performances in the United shirt, and this could be a sign of him and Anthony Martial suffering from fatigue as they would have converted their chances early on in the campaign. Despite this, the Englishman is more or less likely to start versus Burnley on Boxing Day as Mourinho has often swapped between him and Martial on the left side of the attack.
The draw sees Manchester United 13 points behind Manchester City at the half-way mark of the Premier League season, and the FA Cup looks the realistic way to claim some silverware this term with the Citizens showing no signs of dropping points.
