Rashford was a late addition to the Manchester United starting line-up on 25 February 2016, for their UEFA Europa League round of 32, second leg tie against Midtjylland after Anthony Martial was injured in the warm-up. He marked his first-team debut with two goals in the second half of a 5–1 win. Rashford’s goals made him Manchester United’s youngest ever scorer in European competition, beating a record previously held by George Best.
Three days later, Rashford made his Premier League debut against Arsenal when he scored twice and provided the assist for the other goal in a 3–2 home victory, making him the third youngest scorer for United in Premier League history after Federico Macheda and Danny Welbeck.
Rashford on 20 March 2016, scored the only goal in the Manchester derby, his team’s first away league win over Manchester City since 2012. He made his mark as the youngest ever scorer in a Manchester derby in the Premier League era at just 18 years and 141 days.
Rashford scored a fantastic curled goal in a 2–1 win during the FA Cup sixth-round replay against West Ham on 13 April 2016, to put United through to the semi-finals. He later led the line in the FA Cup Final against Crystal Palace on 21 May, which ended in a 2–1 victory marking United’s 12th FA Cup win and Rashford’s first piece of silverware. Despite only debuting in February, he wrapped up the 2015–16 season with 8 goals in 18 appearances, as well as winning the Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year.
Rashford during the 2016–17 season, scored his first goal of the season on 27 August 2016 against Hull City. He scored thrice more the next month, on 18 September in a 3–1 league defeat to Watford; on 21 September in a 3–1 victory against Northampton Town in the EFL Cup third round; and in a 4–1 league win over Leicester City on 24 September. On 7 January 2017, he scored a four-minute brace in the FA Cup against Jaap Stam’s Reading, which ended 4–0. Rashford won his third trophy on 26 February in the EFL Cup Final, coming on as a 77th-minute substitute in the 3–2 victory over Southampton. He started in the Europa League Final on 24 May against Dutch team Ajax, which Manchester United won 2–0 thus earning his fourth, and first European, trophy.
For the 2017–18 season, Rashford made his first appearance of his second full senior season on 8 August 2017 against Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup as a 46th-minute substitute in a 2–1 defeat. Rashford scored his first goal of the season on 26 August, the opener in a 2–0 victory over Leicester, three minutes after coming on as a substitute. On 12 September, Rashford scored against Basel on his UEFA Champions League debut, marking the sixth competition that he has scored in on his debut.

Solskjaer explains Rashford & Lindelof absences but expects both to play vs PSG
The Red Devils boss has shuffled his pack for a Premier League trip to Fulham, but should be at full strength for midweek Champions League duty
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Marcus Rashford and Victor Lindelof will be ready for Manchester United’s Champions League clash with Paris Saint-Germain despite missing out against Fulham.
Two senior stars who have been in impressive form over recent weeks were left out of the Red Devils’ starting XI for a Premier League trip to Craven Cottage on Saturday.
England international forward Rashford was able to take a place among the substitutes, but Swedish centre-half Lindelof missed out completely.
Solskjaer told MUTV of those selection calls: “There are a couple of niggles, Rashford got a dead leg against Leicester. We don’t want to risk him.
“At the back, Victor is out, not really a concern, he should be okay for Tuesday.”
United will face PSG in midweek as they take in the first leg of an eagerly-anticipated Champions League last-16 encounter.
The Ligue 1 leaders will be paying a visit to Old Trafford for that contest.
Solskjaer will hope to be at full strength for a crucial clash, especially as PSG are set to be without the mercurial talents of Brazilian striker Neymar through injury.
Rashford could be the man to make a difference on the grandest of stages, with the 21-year-old having starred as a central striker since United took the decision to part with Jose Mourinho.
He has registered six goals since Solskjaer took the reins in December, with his performances keeping £75 million man Romelu Lukaku on the sidelines.
The Belgian will get an opportunity to impress against Fulham, though, as he steps in to fill the role of lone frontman – with Anthony Martial and Juan Mata providing attacking support from wide.
In all, Solskjaer has made six changes to his starting line-up from the one which edged out Leicester 1-0 in United’s last Premier League outing.
Lukaku, Martial and Mata are three of those to come back in, with Diogo Dalot, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones – fresh from committing to a new long-term contract – also recalled.
Rashford is joined by Jesse Lingard and Alexis Sanchez on the bench.
United will be looking to make it 10 wins from 11 games under Solskjaer when they tackle Fulham, with an interim manager yet to come unstuck across all competitions.
