Marcus Rashford scores 92nd minute winner to end his 2020 on a high

Marcus Rashford capped off 2020 with a 92nd-minute winner for Manchester United as he struck late to send his side to second on the table.

The young Englishman has gone from strength to strength this year with his commitment to helping feed hungry children in the United Kingdom receiving widespread support.

Scoring a match-winning goal might not be on the same level as helping eradicate hunger but it will be the perfect cherry on the cake for Rashford!

His strike, which admittedly took a huge deflection off Romain Saiss’s thigh before finding the back of the net, takes Manchester United within two points of champions and leaders, Liverpool.

The Merseysiders have been blighted by injury this season but their fans will also admit that they have played poorly even at times with a full squad available to Jurgen Klopp.

The 7-2 Premier League humbling at Villa Park is an example of how Liverpool have been exposed at times this season.

Liverpool and Manchester United face each other at Anfield in just over two week’s time and while it’s too soon to be a decisive fixture in the Premier League title race, it will certainly be a feisty affair.

Manchester United will be motivated more than usual to beat the Kopites after Alisson Becker sprinted the length of the pitch to celebrate a 94th minute Mohamed Salah goal last season.

Ole Gunnar Solksjaer will need to get his tactics right to ensure his side is well equipped to beat Jurgen Klopp’s men.
