After missing a penalty a few minutes earlier, Marcus Rashford fired home to score the match’s second goal. And while United’s first goal of the game may have been a club landmark, Rashford’s goal marked a personal milestone.
His finish against Norwich goalkeeper Tim Krul was his 50th goal for the club. Fans were quick to show their support for the striker, who, at the age of 21, has a lot more to offer the club. One fan pleaded with the club to purchase more midfielders to help provide Rashford with more goal-scoring opportunities in the future.
Fantastic record Marcus, you are our hero, well done and good luck ?????????

Sign midfielders and you’ll get more goals from him

Another fan pointed out that the player looks fresher after having a week off during the international break, while another account suggests Rashford could go on to break Wayne Rooney’s goalscoring record at the club.
Since he has got a little rest during the international break, he has been sensational, hope he continues his form.

This man scored his 50th goal for #MUFC this weekend.
At the age of 21, his best years ahead still ahead of him, could he go all the way and break Wayne Rooney's record?

The player himself even chimed in, insisting that his focus was on the future and his next 50 goals.
All about the next 50 now ??

What do we think?
Despite missing a penalty earlier in the match, Rashford’s 50th goal is a huge achievement for someone of his age. With a trip to Chelsea on the horizon, Rashford will be hoping to snag another goal in League Cup.
