Kasper Schmeichel made an absolutely outrageous save to deny Manchester United’s Marcus Rashford a second goal this afternoon.
Rashford had already submitted his contender for miss of the season and found the back of the net in the first-half of the contest, making it a good day’s work for him.
He wasn’t done there, though, for Rashford appeared intent on snapping Schmeichel’s wrist in two.

Rashford raced through on goal and unleashed a thunderous strike in the direction of the game, but somehow, someway, Schmeichel was equal to it.
There’s strong hands from goalkeepers in the act of making a save – and then there’s this.
How did Schmeichel save this?

Kasper looked intent on following in the footsteps of his father, a Manchester United legend, of course.
Rashford could be criticised for not putting it further in the corner, but in all honesty, who on Earth would expect a goalkeeper to keep a shot with that amount of power out of the back of the net?
