Manchester United caught the eye last night with an emphatic demolition job on RB Leipzig. The Bundesliga leaders travelled to Old Trafford looking to upset the apple cart but Julian Nagelsmann’s side were embarrassed by the Red Devils, who ran out 5-0 winners.
Marcus Rashford came off the bench to hit a memorable treble while fellow forwards Mason Greenwood and Anthony Martial were also on the scoresheet in a perfect night for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The England international was lavished in praise for his performance, following his recent heroics off the field in the fight to end child food poverty.
He also received recognition for his generosity during the contest, after gifting strike partner Martial the chance to take the penalty that could have sealed his hat-trick.
