There is perhaps no attack in the Premier League with more options than Manchester United’s, and perhaps no more versatile player across that attack than Marcus Rashford. He has played towards the left, the right and through the centre during his career, but it was at the age of 22 in the 2019/20 season that his position settled and he started performing most consistently.
From the left of a fluid front four Rashford provided a consistent threat on goal and demonstrated an increased awareness and ability to create for his similarly potent teammates, making himself an even more important part of the exciting team Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is building. “He’s mixing up his game, he’s making defenders think,” Solskjaer said of his progress. “He runs in behind; he comes short; he can play a pass; he’s got individual skills. So, Marcus has got all the attributes to be a top forward.”
