Cool stat: Man United starlet now the best finisher in the Premier League

It has been an incredible start to his professional football career for Man United striker Marcus Rashford, who smashed yet another in for the Red Devils in a vital 1-0 derby win over Man City on Sunday. The teenage forward has been on an incredible run in his first eight games, scoring three Premier League goals and adding another two in the Europa League. But right now there’s little denying how good he really is.

According to the Metro, Rashford is converting on 60% of his takes – more than any other player in the Premier League with at least three goals.

Rashford made his debut against FC Midtjylland in the Europa League as a last-minute addition to the starting XI after starting striker Anthony Martial was injured in pre-game warmups. He scored two goals in the game as Man United crushed the Danish side in a 5-1 win.

Just three days later, Rashford added two more goals and an assist as Man United beat Arsenal 3-2. His exceptional scoring form has even earned speculation that he will earn a call from the Three Lions for Euro 2016.
