Thierry Henry has heaped praise on Marcus Rashford following his performance in Manchester United’s 4-0 win over West Ham United on Sunday.

The 19-year-old started Manchester United’s first game of the season and featured for 80 minutes at Old Trafford as Jose Mourinho’s men made a brilliant start to the new campaign.

Two goals for Romelu Lukaku and late strikes from Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial wrapped up a comfortable victory for Mourinho’s side and moved them to the top of the Premier League table after the first weekend of fixtures.

Rashford was in impressive form and notched up an assist at Old Trafford as Manchester United claimed a thumping win in front of their home fans.

And Arsenal legend Henry chose to heap praise on Rashford following his brilliant performance at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Speaking to Sky Sports after Sunday’s game, Henry said: “I thought Marcus Rashford had an amazing game.

“Gary [Neville] said it, the pace they have, the size they have, and today they put the ball in the back of the net.

“That was something they were not doing last season. Lukaku was outstanding, Nemanja Matic too, and Rashford was a threat all afternoon.”

Rashford will be hoping to feature for Manchester United once again when the Red Devils take on Swansea City in their next Premier League game on Saturday lunchtime.

The Red Devils are looking to win the Premier League this season after their disappointing sixth-placed finish in the top flight last term.
