Manchester United star Marcus Rashford’s Premier League record against Liverpool is quite something.
In fact, only three players have scored more domestic goals for the Red Devils against their arch nemesis.
Club stalwarts Wayne Rooney (6), Andy Cole (4) and Ryan Giggs (4) are the individuals in question – putting Rashford among elite company.
The striker has found the net three times in his last four Premier League games against Liverpool, with these goals being worth four points to United.
A first-half brace set United on their way to a 2-1 victory against Jurgen Klopp’s men on home soil in March 2018, while he was on target in a 1-1 draw at Anfield in October 2019.
The Manchester United star was awarded an MBE in 2020 for his campaign to get free school meals for hungry kids during holidays and while schools are closed due to COVID-19.
And on the field things have been going rather well for him this season too, with 15 goals in 30 games across all competitions.
Rashford has been directly involved in 11 goals in his last 14 Premier League appearances (6 goals, 5 assists).
The omens are certainly in United’s favour. They will be top of the table going into a Premier League meeting with Liverpool for the first time since January 2013.
Back then they were led by the great Sir Alex Ferguson, with the Red Devils going on to win the title in that campaign.
Klopp side’s are winless in three Premier League games (D2 L1), failing to score in their last two fixtures.
Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men haven’t registered a win in their last four league games against Liverpool (D2 L2).
That is the club’s longest run without a win against their rivals since a run of five between March 2000 and January 2002.
Manchester United take on Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday, January 17 with kick-off set for 4:30pm.
