Marcus Rashford is a shoo-in for all player of the year shortlists if he continues to put in performances like this. The No 10 was the creative force behind Antony’s opener and Conor Coady’s own goal before scoring a stoppage-time penalty that came after Alejandro Garnacho was yanked down and which ensured Manchester United’s passage into the next round.
Of his star act, Erik ten Hag said: “Again, great performance, Marcus was the one who went in front and showed the confidence and the belief and good movements behind, taking the players on and for 90 minutes was a threat. When he keeps focus like that I am sure he can keep this process going.”
