Gary Lineker took to social media to praise Marcus Rashford for his performance after Manchester United claimed a 1-0 win at Leicester City on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils bounced back to winning ways following their 2-2 draw with Burnley in midweek as they moved up into fifth place in the Premier League table.

Rashford scored the only goal of the game early on at the King Power Stadium as he netted his ninth goal of the season in the Premier League for the Red Devils.

England international Lineker is clearly a keen admirer of Rashford and he has regularly taken to social media to praise the attacker.

And Lineker used his personal Twitter account to praise Rashford after he netted the winner on Sunday.

Lineker wrote: “Never understood these doubts about @MarcusRashford’s composure in front of goal.

“He’s always struck me as totally confident and calm in his finishing. Mature beyond his years.”

Rashford has scored 10 goal in all competitions for Manchester United to help them challenge for Champions League qualification.

Manchester United have not won the Premier League title since their famous final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
