‘Top Performance!,’ Man United fans react to forward’s showing vs CSKA Moscow

Manchester United supporters were pleased with the performance of Marcus Rashford after he netted the winning goal during Tuesday night’s Champions League encounter versus CSKA Moscow.

The Russian giants took a 1-0 lead at half-time after Alan Dragoev scored controversially from an offside position. However, United came back in the second period with goals from Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford – both of whom ended their recent goal drought.

Rashford missed a glorious chance to score in the first-half where he hit the woodwork on the far post, but he made up for it with a neatly timed finish – just over a minute after Lukaku equalised for United on the night.

Here are the best tweets over Rashford’s showing….

Jose Mourinho has persisted with the 3-5-2 formation in the past couple of games, and it has worked out to United’s benefit with eight goals in the last three appearances across all competitions.

Despite Rashford’s impressive showing, Anthony Martial appears to have won over Mourinho for a regular starting role, and the Frenchman could pair up with Romelu Lukaku once more, should the Portuguese opt for a similar formation versus Manchester City.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic probably playing his final season at Old Trafford, Manchester United look in good hands going forward with both Martial and Rashford capable of stepping up with stand-out performances in the striker’s role.
