Video: Marcus Rashford scores two goals minutes apart in Premier League Debut

Just days after 18-year-old Marcus Rashford, scored twice against Midtjylland to save Manchester United in the Europe League, the teenager gave an encore, scoring two goals against Arsenal in his Premier League debut. Both goals came just minutes apart and shell-shocked the visitors, who had been controlling most of the play up to that point.

Rashford, who is acting as understudy for an injured Anthony Martial, is making quite a case that he deserves more of a starring roll in Louis Van Gaal’s side. Given United’s  struggles to score at times this season, it might be hard to argue that Rashford shouldn’t be seeing more of the pitch going forward.
