Marcus Rashford is becoming a real thorn in the side of opposition defences, according to Manchester United legend Gary Pallister.

The England international has made an eye-catching start to the Premier League season despite coming under pressure from France star Anthony Martial for his left-wing spot.

Indeed, Rashford has scored two goals and has made three assists in seven appearances in the Premier League to make a solid start to the 2017-18 season ahead of this weekend’s trip to Liverpool.

The Manchester United striker scored on his Champions League debut in a 3-0 victory over Swiss side Basel at Old Trafford last month to continue his excellent record of scoring on debuts.

Rashford burst onto the scene as a centre-forward under Louis van Gaal to score eight times in 18 games in the 2015-16 season before finding his opportunities rather more limited last term with Jose Mourinho.

Former Manchester United defender Pallister heaped praise on Rashford for his impressive start to the campaign.

“Rashford is learning all the time, becoming a thorn in the side for many defences with his pace and ingenuity,” Pallister told BetSafe.

Rashford has scored on his Premier League, Champions League, Europa League, League Cup and England debuts.

Manchester United drew 0-0 with bitter rivals Liverpool in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.
