The England stars scored three goals between them at Old Trafford to keep Erik ten Hag's slim title hopes alive

Marcus Rashford scored two more goals to keep up his scintillating form in front of goal as Manchester United ran out easy 3-0 winners over Leicester City on Tuesday.

After David de Gea had made two fine early saves, Rashford stepped up to break the deadlock after running onto Bruno Fernandes' superb through-ball.

Rashford ran clear again early in the second half following a pass from Fred to make it 2-0, before substitute Jadon Sancho secured the points after finishing off a fine team move.

GOAL rates United's players from Old Trafford...

  1. Goalkeeper & Defence

    Goalkeeper & Defence

    David de Gea (8/10):

    Two superb saves kept the scores level before United took control. A record-breaking clean sheet.

    Diogo Dalot (6/10):

    Missed a sitter in the first half. Dealt increasingly well with Barnes' threat.

    Victor Lindelof (6/10):

    Targeted by Iheanacho early on but grew into the game

    Lisandro Martinez (8/10):

    Almost marked another outstanding showing with a goal, but headed attempt crashed off the crossbar.

    Luke Shaw (7/10):

    Continues to be remarkably consistent. Given a rest for the final 20 minutes.

    Marcel Sabitzer (6/10):

    Fortunate to avoid a red card in the first half but otherwise solid in his midfield duties.

    Fred (6/10):

    As wasteful in possession as he is energetic out of it. Saved best for last with assist for Rashford's second with final touch before being replaced.

  3. Attack

    Bruno Fernandes (8/10):

    Two assists and should have had a third for Dalot. Growing into his new role on the right-hand side.

    Wout Weghorst (5/10):

    Better up front in the second half than he was as a No.10 in the first, but still lacks quality on the ball.

    Alejandro Garnacho (5/10):

    Replaced at half-time as Leicester regularly attacked down his flank.

    Marcus Rashford (9/10):

    The most unstoppable player in world football right now? Quite possibly.

  4. Subs & Manager

    Subs & Manager

    Jadon Sancho (8/10):

    Superb after coming on as a No.10 for the second half. Sealed the points with a fine finish.

    Scott McTominay (6/10):

    Solid enough on his return from injury.

    Anthony Elanga (6/10):

    Made little impact on the game after replacing Rashford.

    Aaron Wan-Bissaka (6/10):

    Got up and down the right in the final 20 minutes.

    Kobbie Mainoo (6/10):

    Made his Premier League debut for the final 10 minutes.

    Erik ten Hag (8/10):

    Needed his goalkeeper to bail his side out early on, but half-time decision to bring on Sancho as a No.10 proved the difference in the end.
