Marcus Rashford scored two goals for Manchester United as they triumphed 3-2 over Arsenal

Marcus Rashford is the new sensation at Old Trafford after scoring 4 goals in his first two matches for Manchester United. The young forward had a Premier League debut to remember as he scored two well-taken goals in Manchester United’s 3-2 victory over Arsenal.

Although Rashford is currently playing like a star, he showed just how young he was during the post-match interview.

When the reporter asked how he will be celebrating his side’s victory, Rashford replied by saying that he would not be able to because of a Chemistry exam! However, this was clearly a prank played by the Twitter account “The United Theory”, who added #bantz in a separate tweet replying to this earlier tweet of theirs. Though they are reports of Rashford having an exam and hence he wasn't celebrating, it was clearly not true and was just a joke. 

Some of their other tweets post that also indicates that they were indeed playing a prank, and were just trying to poke fun at Arsenal.


Rashford has been a breath of first air in Louis Van Gaal’s Manchester United side as he put in another fearless and goalscoring performance against Arsenal after his heroics in the Europa League.

Rashford thrilled with Premier League debut

The 18-year-old, who scored two on his debut against Midtjylland on Thursday, gave his first televised interview to Sky Sports after the game and could not conceal his delight at the end of a wonderful week.

"This is my first game in the Premier League, so obviously it's been amazing and to score two is just a bonus," he told Sky Sports.

"Hopefully we can just carry it on and we go again next game."

"It was a shock playing midweek because Martial was meant to be starting and then coming in but that kind of benefited me because I wasn't thinking about the game too much. It's been good."

"It's just crazy but having the likes of Michael around in the team as well helps, with their experience, so we can only go forward. It's crazy, you can't really explain it when you're out there. It's just a rush of blood, everything."

Michael Carrick who captained Manchester United was full of praise for the talented youngster:

Carrick said: "It's just a real breath of fresh air.

"Football's a great game and when you see young lads coming through for me it brings back memories of not quite scoring like he's done but when you start out in your career, you get your chance and you want to take it.

"I think it's a big boost for the whole club. It's a good feeling now and hopefully with more to come."

Carrick handed the Rashford the man of the match award and told him: "Keep on scoring."
