Manchester United’s Starlet, Marcus Rashford, has added his name to Old Trafford’s record books. The striker beat Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal record after 100 games when he scored the only goal against Leicester City. With the win over Leicester, they extend their unbeaten run under interim Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to 10 games.

Although the Foxes returned from a well-deserved point against Liverpool on Wednesday, they could not muster enough self-confidence to gain some points against Red Devils. Together with the heroic deeds of David De Gea United secure important three points.

Rashford scored his tenth goal of the season and the only goal of the game, with a slight touch past Leicester shot-stopper Kasper Schmeichel. The young Englishman has recently been in an impressive scoring round and massively praised by Solskjaer, who compared him to Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney.

The goal against Leicester City was the 26th of the 21-year-old after 100 appearances in the league. Ronaldo, meanwhile, scored 19 goals in the Premier League in his first 100 appearances for the Red Devils. After 150 appearances in all competitions for United Rashford is still ahead with 41 goals, while Ronaldo scored 32 goals in the same number of games.
