Ray Parlour sends Twitter message to Marcus Rashford ahead of Man United v Arsenal

Ray Parlour has a message for Marcus Rashford...

Ray Parlour has jokingly told Marcus Rashford to take Sunday off after his stellar performance for Manchester United on Thursday night.

The teenager scored twice on his debut to help Louis van Gaal’s side record a thumping 5-1 win over FC Midtjylland in the Europa League at Old Trafford.

United now turn their attentions towards their crunch Premier League showdown against Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

And although Arsenal legend Parlour was impressed by Rashford’s sparkling display on Thursday, he would like to see the youngster have a rest against the Gunners.

Parlour tweeted on Thursday evening:

Arsenal head into the game in third place in the Premier League table and two points behind Leicester with 12 games left to play. The Gunners were beaten 2-0 by Barcelona at The Emirates in the Champions League in midweek.
