Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Marcus Rashford is making a case for being the best current striker in the Premier League.
The Manchester United caretaker boss was full of praise for Rashford after the 2-1 win over Brighton yesterday, and believes there is no-one in better form at the moment.
Rashford scored a superb goal to put his side 2-0 up in the Premier League contest at Old Trafford and caused the Seagulls plenty of other problems as United’s perfect start under Solskjaer extended to a seventh game in all competitions.
The 21-year-old England international, who expertly turned away from Pascal Gross before curling a fine shot into the top corner, has netted five times in six league matches following the Norwegian’s appointment in December.
And when he was asked if he thought Rashford was currently the best centre-forward in the division, Solskjaer said: “You can argue for many strikers but I’m glad he’s in my team.
“Harry Kane’s injured so maybe that gives him a better chance to be the best one at the moment. No-one beats him on work-rate, no-one beats him on attitude and at the moment he’s very confident in front of goal.
He finishes, he tries to shoot, he doesn’t think twice about it. “He made a chance for Jesse (Lingard) and I cannot believe how Jesse didn’t score on that chance at the back post. So at the moment I think he’s playing the best football in his career.”Fastest Paying Betting Site in Nigeria: Grab your 140% First Time Deposit Bonus Now — www.Sportybet.Com Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
