In the 29th minute of this evening’s Premier League encounter between Manchester United and Newcastle, Harry Maguire drove forward to spark a chance for the Red Devils.

The centre-back skipped into Newcastle’s half before firing the ball out wide to Marcus Rashford, the star took a touch before poking the ball through Emil Krafth’s legs with a wonderful nutmeg.

Rashford sprinted down the left-wing before being faced with the Swedish ace once again, just like before, the Man United man got the better as he burst past with a quick change of pace.

Rashford then drilled the ball into the near post corner with an amazing finish from a tight angle, somehow squeezing the ball past the sliding Krafth and into the back of the net.

It’s taken a moment of individual brilliance to spark life into this encounter, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side looking unconvincing beforehand.
