Manchester United fans were comparing Marcus Rashford to club legend Cristiano Ronaldo in the wake of his superb goal against Brighton.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘s side found themselves a goal down at the Amex Stadium after Neal Maupay beat David de Gea from the penalty spot before Nemanja Matic forced an own goal from Lewis Dunk to level the scores heading into half-time.
United pushed for the lead after the interval with Rashford finding the back of the net before VAR ruled the goal out for offside.
The England international was not to be denied second time around after being sent through on goal with an inch-perfect pass from Bruno Fernandes.
Rashford cut in from the left and left Brighton defender Ben White on the ground twice as he feinted a shot on his right before smashing home with his left via a deflection.
His finish had shades of Ronaldo’s time at Old Trafford and United fans were quick to make the comparison on social media.
United transfer target Jadon Sancho sent supporters into a frenzy on Friday by naming his international teammate Rashford as the most skilful player he has ever played alongside.
As things stand United have made progress in talks over Sancho’s wages and agent’s fees, but United and Dortmund remain far apart in their valuation of the player.
