Marcus Rashford has won Manchester United’s Goal-of-the-Month award, for his sensational strike at Brighton & Hove Albion in the Premier League.

His stunning solo effort against the Seagulls received an overwhelming 54 per cent of your votes in our Official App.

Rashford’s closest competition for this month’s accolade was Juan Mata’s effort against Brighton in the Carabao Cup, which claimed 12 per cent of the vote, while in third place, with 10 per cent of the poll, was Rashford's goal against Luton Town in the same competition.

The goal against Brighton was also a historic one, as it was our 10,000th goal scored in all competitions in the club's history.

A quick counterattack, set in motion by Bruno Fernandes who launched a through ball upfield from inside our own half, was coolly finished by Marcus who collected the ball, cut inside and held off a host of defenders before finding the net with his left foot.

It was Rashford's second goal of the campaign following his strike, off the bench, in the Carabao Cup win against Luton Town.

Congratulations to Marcus on picking up his Goal of the Month prize.
