Rashford keeps United place for Arsenal clash
Teenage striking sensation Marcus Rashford kept his place in the starting XI for Manchester United’s Premier League showdown with old rivals Arsenal on Sunday.
Rashford, 18, came into the team following an injury to Anthony Martial ahead of United’s Europa League game with FC Midtjylland on Thursday and scored twice as Louis van Gaal’s side won 5-1.
With Martial still nursing a hamstring injury and Wayne Rooney sidelined by a knee problem, Rashford led the line against Arsenal at Old Trafford, while David de Gea and Marcos Rojo returned from injury.
Arsenal, bidding to keep pace with leaders Leicester City, made three changes, which saw Gabriel, Theo Walcott and United old boy Danny Welbeck come in for Per Merstacker, Olivier Giroud and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
