Marcus Rashford scored his 12th goal for Manchester United this afternoon in our 4-1 win over Leicester City. With two goals on his debut, two goals against Arsenal, and a crucial goal in the FA Cup quarter-final against West Ham, Rashford has singled out his winner at the Etihad as his best moment so far.

In the games before the derby, I hadn’t scored any goals but there were opportunities to score goals. Everyone was telling me to stay calm because everyone goes through a little period where they don’t score goals in two or three matches. So that’s what I did and when the chance came I took it. It was strange because we were away from home but it almost felt like were at home. Our fans were far away in the corner but it just felt like I was playing a home game, our fans were god that game and everything felt as though it was the Arsenal game in front of our home fans.

There is nothing better than beating City, that’s definitely the best moment. But the derby was very close and the emotions I went through that game was different to any other game.
