Marcus Rashford Scores Stunning 18 Minute Champions League Hat-Trick After Coming On As A Substitute

Marcus Rashford netted his first Manchester United hat-trick in 18 stunning minutes after coming on as a substitute in a 5-0 thrashing of RB Leipzig this evening.

The England star entered the fray in the 63rd minute and got on the scoresheet 11 minutes later by latching onto Bruno Fernandes' exquisite through ball and correctly finishing despite the flag initially going up from the linesman.

A VAR review showed that he was in his own half when the ball was played and so the goal was given.

Rashford continued to be deadly in front of goal, striking again four minutes later before completing his hat-trick in stoppage time - having allowed Anthony Martial to take a penalty minutes earlier despite a "little bit" of a discussion about him stepping up.

A class act on and off the pitch, Rashford becomes the second United player to notch a trio of goals after coming on as a substitute.

The first was the man who brought him on this evening, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The Norwegian did it in a 8-1 thumping of Nottingham Forest back in 1999.
