However, there are still few who would have him down as one of the top, top players in the Premier League - with the likes of Mohamed Salah, Kevin De Bruyne, Sadio Mane, Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane, and teammate Bruno Fernandes all seen as at a higher level.
However, looking at the stats, the 23-year-old may actually be challenging this group. Matched against one of them, Liverpool's Mane, he comes off pretty well.
Rashford largely matches or betters the Anfield favourite during the current season and the 2019/20 campaign in the Premier League.
This season they both have six goals in 14 top flight appearances, with Rashford slightly ahead on assists - with four to Mane's two.
Even when you go more in depth, the England international is bettering his rival in his shooting accuracy and success - Mane is only matching his goals tally as he takes more shots.
You may think that this is something new, and Rashford has just hit form in a small sample size. However, last season's numbers are very similar again - Mane has one more goal and they were equal on assists.
It was also very similar when you get to their shooting abilities and goals per minute.
All this is despite Rashford playing in an inferior Manchester United side to Mane's all-conquering Liverpool.
Fans are now starting to rethink the pair's relative ablities...could Rashford be even better than many think?
Rashford will surpass Mane easily man, and that's no disrespect to Mane- A.M (@ManUtdYeezy) December 28, 2020
This is not a Mane Slander post as he's the only player in pool I love. But I'm just happy seeing young Marcus pulling up these numbers despite of how wasteful he's been sometimes front of the goal. Focus on finishing and Rashford is in the world class bracket. #MUFC pic.twitter.com/a5BkbsfNIZ- Kevin Printer (@PrinterKevin) December 28, 2020
That's actually very impressive from Rashford. I knew his output improved but didn't think it was better than Mane. https://t.co/ERgO9avdze- Callum (@callmatthews) December 28, 2020
Our own fan base will on one hand call mane world class yet say rashford isnt good enough this makes me laugh. Some idiots on here. pic.twitter.com/sG1a3wnj6G- Foster20_20 (@20_foster20) December 28, 2020
Rashford > Mane. If you Liverpool fans bring up trophies, just remember when we used to compare Scholes to Gerrard and you lot said Gerrard was better- Mubz (@Mubzy_96) December 28, 2020
