Rashford has received criticism from some United fans for the occasional tendency of missing out on clear-cut scoring opportunities.
However, he remains one of United’s most valuable players and only Bruno Fernandes has fared better than him in terms of goal contributions this term.
The England international has played in both wide attacking positions as well as the centre-forward role this season.
He has fared well as a left winger or as a striker but has tended to struggle when he has played on the right side of the attack.
There is room for improvement in this aspect as he approaches the prime of his career with the Red Devils.
