The England striker continued his great run of form in front of goal in the 4-1 Carabao Cup victory over Burton Albion

Manchester United strolled to victory in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday, with Marcus Rashford netting two early goals and later grabbing an assist in the 4-1 win over Burton Albion at Old Trafford.

The teenager now has 24 goals for United and has yet to turn 20, with his form so far this season evidence of his maturation at the highest level.

Even Wayne Rooney hadn't scored so many times for the club at Rashford's age, and the former England captain went on to net a record 253 times before returning to Everton in the summer.

Previously tipped by manager Jose Mourinho to potentially run Rooney's record close, Rashford continues to develop as a top striker.

And, as our Manchester United Correspondent Kris Voakes says, while it's still early days for Rashford, he's showing all the signs of being a United hero to match some of the club's greats of previous years.
