Last night when Marcus Rashford drifted off to sleep, he would have dreamt about scoring at Old Trafford and helping Manchester United through to the next round of the Europa League, but even he would have scoffed at the idea of his night going as well as it did.
United fans will have been wondering what the injury Gods have against them when they saw Anthony Martial limp off in the warm-up, a week after David De Gea suffered the same fate in Denmark, but the man who got the call to replace him was a teenager in the shape of Marcus Rashford.
His debut went rather well.

Speaking after the match, Paul Scholes was giving his opinion on the performance and apart from praising the showing of Memphis Depay, he spoke very highly of Rashford and suggested that he soon could be pushing for a starting place.
I've been watching this kid in U18s, and he's prolific there as well. He's got everything, he's quick, he's such a big lad aswell and once he fills out his physique he'll be ever better, and maybe competing with Martial in the starting lineup.
He's got the Scholes nod of approval, and that's not easy to earn.
An exciting young player to keep an eye on.
