Man Utd news: Rashford matches Solskjaer record

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford was on fire last night as he came off the bench to hit a hat-trick in the Champions League victory over RB Leipzig.

The 22-year-old looked superb in his relatively short time on the pitch, hitting three goals in just 27 minutes on the field – a new record in Europe’s top club competition.

As well as that, Rashford became just the second Man Utd player ever to score a hat-trick after coming on as a substitute, following  in the footsteps of his manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian was a top player for United back in the day, and hit a remarkable four goals in the space of ten minutes when he was subbed on in a game against Nottingham Forest in 1999.

3 – Marcus Rashford is only the second Man Utd player to score a hat-trick as a substitute after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer versus Nottingham Forest in February 1999 in the Premier League. Super.

Solskjaer was in lethal form that day to help the Red Devils to an 8-1 win in the Premier League, and Rashford’s achievement against a top European side is just as impressive.

The England international has made a real name for himself with his activism off the pitch recently, but he’s shown it’s not distracted him from putting in top class performances on the pitch as well.
