Rashford, 22, has netted nine times for Solskjaer's side in the opening 15 Premier League games and is just one goal shy of matching his best ever goalscoring tally in the league. The striker's stunning run of form has seen him grab nine goals in nine games in all competitions for United, while he also provided two assists and grabbed two goals during the recent Euro 2020 qualifiers for England. And Solskjaer has explained how Rashford has overseen this remarkable goalscoring tally.

"He is a young boy and sometimes there are ups and downs, so you have make the positive moments last for longer and get rid of the negative moments as quickly as you can. "He was so direct, taking players on and when he turns there are two thoughts in his mind: he is either going to take you on or get a shot, and they are all positive, which is the key."

"He's a world-class player, and when he's at it, it's hard to stop him," Young told Sky Sports. "He's just growing and growing - and he's still young. He's one of those players who wants to be out there. "He wants to be out on the training pitch improving himself, and he's at his best when he plays off instincts. He just plays off the cuff, and it's frightening to see. "I see it day in, day out, and his confidence is sky-high right now - yet he's still saying he wants to improve. It's just the way he is and he's just got that mentality."
