Jamie Carragher has heaped praise on Marcus Rashford following his impressive recent form for Manchester United.

Rashford was the star of the show as his free-kick handed the Red Devils victory in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final clash against Celta Vigo last week.

The 19-year-old has been in fine form in recent weeks and has scored five goals and made one assist in the Premier League for Jose Mourinho’s men.

The teenager will be hoping to feature when Manchester United travel to Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

And former Liverpool star Carragher believes that Rashford has the full confidence of his team-mates at Old Trafford thanks to his strong form this season.

Writing in his column for the Daily Mail, Carragher said: “Rashford is bursting with belief at the moment.

“His goal against Anderlecht put United in the Europa League last four and his strike in Vigo means they have one foot in the final in Stockholm. The confidence others have in him is clear to see.”
