Twitter Reacts to Marcus Rashford Scoring a Goal, Doing a Flip-Flap & Missing a Sitter vs Brighton

​Marcus Rashford....inho?

In one of the more positive outings by Manchester United this season, an impressive attacking display somehow failed to produce more than three goals on Sunday - as Brighton's defence struggled to contain the potency of Anthony Martial, Daniel James and the young English striker.

Needing victory to banish memories of an uninspiring defeat to Bournemouth last time out, an all-round positive display from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men acted as the perfect tonic heading into another international break.

Having come under criticism this season for some below-par outings, ​Rashford stole the show at Old Trafford with some positive, exciting play that had fans remembering exactly why the United number ten is among the finest talents in the country.

In recent weeks he has began to forge a partnership with Martial that demonstrates fine link-up play, off-the-ball running and individual skill that is painting a far brighter picture in the north-west to the one that has been underwhelming at best so far this campaign.

One of the main reasons for the slight upturn in form recently has been the 22-year-old, who has made Old Trafford his home with some interesting facts being coughed up by Opta in the wake of Sunday's clash.

The forward scored his 30th goal for the ​Red Devils at Old Trafford, with six of those having come in the 2019/20 season. Only in the 2017/18 campaign has he netted more home goals in a single season for the club (nine), a number which is he most likely to smash this time around.

Fans on Twitter were loving what they saw, in particular the partnership he and ​Martial are beginning to forge.

​​Two scrappy goals set United on their way in the first half, but with ​Brighton pushing further up in the second half in search of a route back into the match, United, and Rashford in particular, looked lethal on the break.

​​As the Seagulls grabbed the goal they needed, it looked as if it was going to be another similar story for Solskjaer's men.

That, however, was until United broke again and Rashford did the business. Rather convincingly, it must be said.

​​Then the other side to Rashford's game creeped in.

Seemingly only able to score great goals, he was presented with the perfect opportunity to put the game to bed. 

James found him with a perfectly weighted goal, it was just to be tapped in. 

If only it was that simple.

​​

​​

​​

​​He, and United, missed a few, to be fair.

​​

​​That's all well and good.

But did you see the flip flap?

DID YOU SEE THE SKILL?

You probably have, but sod it, it's worth seeing 176 times more. Rashford went full Ronaldinho and RINSED Davy Propper. It was the stuff of FIFA Street dreams.

​​

​​

​​

​​All in all it was a job well done for Rashford and co. You just feel, it could (and should) have been so many more on a day where missed chances were aplenty.

Nevertheless, the feeling after the match was one of mixed emotions. Rashford showcasing his fine raw ability, but equally, frustrating with some poor misses.

​​

​​

​​

​​Mixed emotions, indeed.
