Man Utd forward picks out derby strike as a teenager after reaching half-century of PL goals

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has scored 54 goals in the Premier League so far, but it is his third in the competition that he ranks as his favourite, which came just one month into his senior career.

“I’d probably say the goal against [Man] City at the Etihad Stadium away [in March 2016]," said Rashford, who has been honoured with a Milestone award, presented by the League and Coca-Cola, for reaching 50 goals.

"It was my first derby and we won the game 1-0. It was a difficult game, but, yeah, that feeling of scoring in my first derby was great."

The Manchester United forward, who scored twice to inspire a 3-2 victory over Arsenal on his dream Premier League debut in February 2016, reached 50 PL goals on Boxing Day this season, when he opened the scoring in a 2-2 draw at Leicester City.

That goal put him among the 10 youngest players to achieve their half-century in the competition.

Still only 23, Rashford hopes to score many more goals in the years ahead.

"It's a nice feeling, but I am still very young in my career and it's early stages still, so, hopefully, I can go on and score a lot more goals, but I have enjoyed it."
