Rashford's hot streak on the road

Thursday 14 January 2021 12:01

Marcus Rashford approaches Sunday's big game at Liverpool on a hot streak of form away from home in the Premier League and Carabao Cup.

The England international missed last year's trip to Anfield due to injury but will be looking to upset the Merseysiders on Sunday afternoon with his pace and trickery.

With three previous goals against our arch-rivals, the Mancunian will be a major threat to a defence missing Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.

Marcus Rashford has been on fire away from home in domestic competition recently…

It was the forward's clever pass from wide on the right that allowed Paul Pogba to volley the winner at Burnley on Tuesday, the latest goal involvement for the 23-year-old, despite operating in a variety of different positions in the United attack.

This spell started with a sensational display at Newcastle United as he not only scored but provided assists for Bruno Fernandes and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in a 4-1 victory.

He then looked to have scored with a header from a Fernandes cross at Everton, only for replays to show he did not get a touch as the ball sped past Jordan Pickford. Nonetheless, as he had played the original pass to the Portugal international, he claimed the assist.

After setting up Edinson Cavani's winner in the dramatic comeback win against Southampton with an inviting ball into the box, he found the net at West Ham with a clever dinked finish.

A double blast followed, in the 3-2 success at Sheffield United, and he helped United progress past Everton in the Carabao Cup when casually playing Anthony Martial in for the stoppage-time clincher at Goodison Park.

Watch every angle of Paul Pogba's superb goal at Turf Moor in January 2021...

On Boxing Day, he was heavily involved at Leicester City and calmly beat Kasper Schmeichel to net in the 2-2 draw.

Let's not forget this spell also includes home goals for Marcus in the Champions League (against RB Leipzig, Istanbul Basaksehir and Paris Saint-Germain) and the priceless late winner in the 1-0 triumph over Wolves in our final game of 2020.

Our homegrown talent has been at the sharp end of so much of our attacking work and we will look to him to hopefully deliver the goods again in the big one this weekend.
