Although the youngster has scored some memorable goals in his short career, Rashford in a recent interview said that his dream goal would be to score against United's cross-town arch rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford.

Having already scored against City in Premier League tie last season, he said, “Scoring away was a massive moment as well for me, so I can only imagine what a home goal would be like.”

“The game was quite an even one so it could have gone either way. After it went in, the fans were too far away but it was a good feeling with everyone coming towards you. To win the game 1-0 as well, to hold out as a team was a good feeling.''

Manchester United have had turbulent start to their season under Mourinho, things started really well for both Rashford and United but haven't gone well at all in the recent weeks. The 4-0 battering against Chelsea has dampened the spirits of the United faithful and the optimism seems to be diminishing before the League Cup tie against City.

The loss to Manchester City derailed Manchester United's great start to the season and everyone at Old Trafford will be looking forward to avenge that defeat and get back to winning ways in the EFL Cup clash.

Rashford too has not been as impactful in his recent games and will look to take the game against City as an opportunity to get back to scoring.

In his short career so far, Rashford has scored some memorable goals both home and away, but being a Manchester United fan, a goal against United's firecrest rivals could mean the world to the teenager.

There will be another chapter in the young Mancunian's fairytale if indeed he bags a goal against City on Wednesday night at Old Trafford.
