Besides a goal against their biggest rivals, Marcus Rashford also grabbed the limelights for out-muscling Virgil van Dijk to the floor as Manchester United’s improved display so nearly brought a surprise victory against Liverpool on Sunday.
The striker looked to be in great spirits as he hung out with South London rapper Youngs Teflon after the game.
And it seems the duo had a right laugh at the expense of the Dutchman as Youngs took to his Twitter account and uploaded a photo with the caption “Right after we laughed at the VVD challenge”.
The rapper has continually laced his music with football references since starting out.
Disappointed not to win but much better from us and good to get on the scoresheet.— Marcus Rashford (@MarcusRashford) October 20, 2019

His obsession with football has seen him reel off bars in a number of tracks and freestyles down the years, with the Manchester United fan often vocal on Twitter about the game he loves most. He even has a track named “Marcus Rashford”.
Rashford, meanwhile has been under pressure in recent weeks after enduring a dry spell in front of goal for Manchester United with many fans and pundits questioning his ability and hunger to lead the line for United.
But the 21-year-old turned in a good performance for United against Liverpool.
Rashford found the net to give his side a lead in a game few gave them a chance of getting something out of, but Adam Lallana’s late goal saw the contest finish 1-1.
The result is a much-needed boost for Rashford and United, who have been off the boil this season.
Rashford will get another chance to prove his number 9 credentials this Sunday when United travel to Carrow Road to take on newly promoted side Norwich City.
