Yesterday, at the King Power Stadium, Manchester United continued their fine run of recent form with a victory.
The only goal of the game came courtesy of a strike from Marcus Rashford.
Rashford, enjoying a new lease of life under the managerial acumen of Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, was the preferred starter in the central striking position, ahead of Romelu Lukaku.
Rashford looked dangerous throughout the game and, on another occasion, could have scored a brace but, somehow, his header from a central position some six-yards out, sailed over the bar.
But, reflecting on Rashford’s performance two interesting facts have come to light.
It appears that since he made his debut, Rashford has been involved in more goals in all competitions than any other Manchester United player, with the figure standing at 42.
Also, yesterday, against Leicester City, Rashford made his 100th appearance in the Premier League, at the tender age of 21 years and 95 days, only Ryan Giggs, who reached the same figure at the tender age of 21 years and 74 days can beat that when it comes to Manchester United players.
