Following Manchester United’s dramatic winner against West Ham an incredible stat about today’s match winner Marcus Rashford has emerged.

Rashford was once again United’s super sub, and made it back-to-back games in which he has scored from the bench after also bagging the third goal in United’s 3-1 win at Brentford in midweek.

However, his goal today stands to be far more important than the goal from midweek, as it propels The Red Devils into the top four ahead of West Ham United.

Depending on how results go for Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal on Sunday, United might relinquish their position by the end of the weekend but will also have gained a significant advantage in terms of taking points off of a direct rival.
