Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho each scored, Shaw with top notch assist
Marcus Rashford continued his prolific goal-scoring as he bagged a brilliant goal in Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Leeds United on Sunday.
Man United left it late to secure the three points at Elland Road as Rashford and Alejandro Garnacho each scored in the space of five blistering minutes.
The visitors opened the scoring when Luke Shaw expertly picked out Rashford, who completed the move with a wonderful headed goal.
The 25-year-old brought up his 12th league goal of the season as he enjoys a superb spell following the 2022 World Cup, where he starred for England.

Erik ten Hag’s side then made it 2-0 in the 85th after second-half substitute Garnacho found the back of the net with a tidy finish.
Wout Weghorst slid a ball into the Argentine winger, who showed off his pace to beat his marker before scoring past Illan Meslier.

Rio Ferdinand tweeted: “Shaw to Rashford… some form right now!!”
