Marcus Rashford Scores Incredible Solo Goal To Give Man Utd The Lead Vs Brighton
Marcus Rashford has given Manchester United the lead vs Brighton & Hove Albion with a sublime solo effort at the AMEX Stadium.
Brighton took the lead in the first half through a cheeky Neal Maupay penalty before a Lewis Dunk own goal brought United level.
In the second half however, Rashford produced a moment of magic to put his side ahead for the first time this afternoon.
The England international galloped down the wing before twisting and turning Ben White inside the penalty area.
That is absolutely brilliant by Marcus Rashford :fire:

He then placed the ball in the top right corner as Mat Ryan looked on in despair.
Fans have reacted to the strike and they're hoping it can kickstart the 22-year-old's season.

Owes a lot to Marcus Rashford with that one though. :eyes: pic.twitter.com/eajUV3TXiT
Graham Potter's side opened the scoring through Maupay after Bruno Fernandes hauled down Tariq Lamptey inside the area.
Fernandes made up for his mistake moments later when he fizzed a teasing free-kick into the Brighton box.
Nemanja Matic put the ball back across goal and Harry Maguire attacked it before it deflected in off Brighton captain Dunk.
Fernandes was involved again by providing the pass for Rashford's goal, although he played a very minor role in that.
Do you think United will hold on and win the game?
