Marcus Rashford equals Manchester United goalscoring record in Manchester Derby

Marcus Rashford became the first Manchester United player since Dennis Viollet in 1959 to score in nine successive matches at Old Trafford when he registered in Saturday’s Manchester derby, according to Sports Mole.

The England international came up with the winning goal in the 82nd minute of the contest, converting a low cross from Alejandro Garnacho to send the Red Devils into a 2-1 lead.

The 25-year-old has now scored 16 goals and registered six assists in 26 appearances in all competitions for Man United during the 2022-23 campaign.

Rashford has netted in each of his seven appearances at club level since the 2022 World Cup, and his goal against Man City saw him equal a 64-year record.

The forward has now scored in nine successive matches at Old Trafford, registering against Sheriff Tiraspol, West Ham United, Aston Villa, Burnley, Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth, Everton, Charlton Athletic and Man City, which equals the club record held by Viollet from 1959.
