Player to Watch: Marcus Rashford
Rashford returned from the World Cup with a goal in the 2-0 win over Burley in the League Cup and we're expecting the England international to push on now and have a great second half of the season.
Rashford was one of England's better players in Qatar despite not starting in most of the matches. When Southgate called upon Rashford he generally answered, scoring 3-goals before the team were knocked out by France in the Quarter-Finals. There are some champions league predictions in here
The United forward has scored 4-goals in the league this season, top scoring for his club, and we're backing the Wythenshawe favourite lớn find the back of the net against Nottingham Forest and help United to secure all 3pts in this post-Christmas fixture.
Whilst Rashford's form has been questioned over the last couple of seasons, some of his performances in the current campaign suggest that he might be getting back lớn somewhere near his best under ten Hag and that can only be a good thing for Manchester United and England.
