Rashford, who is being preferred up front to Cristiano Ronaldo, has led the line during each of United’s four-match winning run.

And he appears to be loving life under Erik ten Hag with three goals already this term.

His return to form comes after months of speculation that he was set to depart Old Trafford over the summer.

That came after a dismal campaign in 2021/22 that led to just five goals for the club and also led to him losing his place in Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

Meanwhile, Twitter account @FernandesZone has now claimed that his United teammate Fernandes has let slip the advice he gave his younger colleague.

Fernandes is reported as saying: “I have told Marcus I don’t care if I miss 10 passes, just focus on receiving the right pass and score it, let the blame be on me.”

The Portuguese international also endured a difficult campaign with United last term following a stunning first full season at the club.

He found the net 28 times during the 2020/21 season, but he failed to match those stats the following campaign with just 10 goals.


Fernandes, 27, has now been handed the captain’s armband since skipper Harry Maguire was demoted to the bench.

He scored the winner at Leicester City last week and has impressed everyone with his displays and work-rate so far under Ten Hag.

The two stars and the rest of United’s squad will now be hoping to continue their impressive run when they kick off their Europa League group stage campaign at home to Real Sociedad on Thursday.

They then travel to South London to take on Crystal Palace on Sunday.
