Marcus Rashford goal: Did you see who Man Utd star celebrated with? | Football | Sport


But did you see who the striker immediately pointed at when celebrating the goal?

Manchester United star Rashford kept his place in the starting XI for the trip to the King Power.

He started up front with Alexis Sanchez, who forced Anthony Martial onto the bench, and Jesse Lingard.

Rashford had come close to opening the scoring just moments before his strike.

And the England international made sure he was on the scoresheet less than 10 minutes in with a lovely take down and shot past goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

It was Rashford’s 13th goal for and England this season.

And as soon as the ball hit the net the 21-year-old turned to point to Paul Pogba, who had created the goal.

It was Pogba’s exquisite chip over the Foxes defence that had latched on to.

Both players have shone under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since Jose Mourinho was sacked in December.

Rashford has scored eight goals since the start of December.

And Pogba has looked like the world-beater United believed he could be when signing him for £89m back in the summer of 2016.

Discussing the goal, former Leicester winger Matt Piper said: “Easy finish in the end for the young man.

“He pulls it out of the sky and smashes it into the net.

“Incredible strike. Terrible start for Leicester.”
