A section of the Manchester United fans are ecstatic over Marcus Rashford’s performance during the club’s 2-1 win over Chelsea in the fourth round of the League Cup.
United had gone into the game on the back of successive wins away from home and they continued the momentum with a victory at Stamford Bridge to progress to the quarter-final stage of the Cup competition.
Rashford was responsible for scoring the opening goal from the penalty spot in the 25th minute but Michy Batshuayi levelled the proceedings for the Blues shortly after the hour mark.
Thereafter, the hosts continued to dominate the proceedings but Rashford came up with the definitive moment of the match after scoring the winner from a staggering 35 yards.
Rashford has been criticised by the club’s faithful for often missing the target when taking free-kicks but against the Blues, he came up with an outrageous strike which can’t be described in the real sense.
Here are some of the best Twitter reactions…
Boom what a win fantastic result and wow what a winner @MarcusRashford take a bow son !!!

Rashford's confidence is back, let's hope he can keep that kind of composure and not go off the boil.
McTominay will be the future captain of this club, what a player he is turning out to be.
And I'd like to welcome our new starting left back to the team, Brandon Williams. ??

I just said to my colleague, 'Take cover'. I take it back, Marcus Rashford. Phenomenal. His best free-kick by a distance. #mufc

Rashford looked to be lacking the confidence in front of goal before the international break but he has recently transformed into the player of old and has bagged four goals from the past three starts in all competitions.
Meanwhile, the result should also boost the team as a whole and hopefully, the victory over the Blues is the turning point for the club as they seek to challenge for the top four in the Premier League this season.
