Marcus Rashford is in the zone. Every touch he takes is golden.

He starred for England at the World Cup. He led the way last week in the Carabao Cup. In Tuesday's 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest, he was the driver of almost everything good for Manchester United.

Rashford spun a shot past Wayne Hennessey to open the scoring through a well-executed set piece routine before teeing up Anthony Martial three minutes later. Later, he split the Nottingham Forest defence with a long through ball that found its way to Antony for a clear-cut chance.

After enduring a lengthy slump dating back to at least Euro 2020, Rashford's latest performance pushed him to six goals and an assist since the start of November for club and country.

Behind Rashford, Casemiro was a key force for Manchester United and even registered a late assist following a dogged defensive midfield effort.

The Red Devils are now just a point behind Tottenham for fourth place with a game in hand, which is a best-case scenario for Erik ten Hag considering the club's putrid start to the season.
