Manchester United star Marcus Rashford seems to have taken his game to another level this season. The 22-year-old youngster has shut down his critics by his amazing performances on the field this season. Rashford has in fact already netted as many as 12 goals this season and with an additional four assists to his name, Rashford now has been involved in more league goals this season than some of the other big names of European football including five time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo.
The England International scored his 12th goal of the season in the team’s 2-0 win over Burnley to become the joint-second top scorer in the Premier League this season.
