It was against the Vicarage Road Landlords that Rashford debuted for United on the bench in 2015. However, he was handed his first League start against Arsenal where he won the Man of the Match scoring two goals and providing an assist in a 3-2 victory. The versatile attacker joined the academy of United as a seven year old and ascended the grade to the first team of United.

‘I trust him [Rashford] completely. I know his future will be absolutely brilliant.
