Man United’s Marcus Rashford wins Premier League award for January

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has this afternoon been named as the Premier League Player of the Month for January.

United’s spearhead

English hitman Rashford has been handed a new lease of life since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment at Old Trafford in December.

United’s new boss has entrusted the 21-year-old with the role of first-choice centre-forward for the Red Devils, with Rashford having since fully repaid the faith placed in him by Solskjaer.

Across 10 appearances since the 22nd of December, the explosive youngster has notched 6 goals and an assist.

Of these strikes, 3 came across 4 Premier League appearances in January, including an all-important winner versus Tottenham at Wembley.
