Rashford to lead United line against West Brom as teen bids to end drought

Date Posted,March 29, 2017

Manchester United will give Marcus Rashford another chance to end his six-month Premier League goal drought this weekend.

Rashford has not scored in the Premier League since plundering United’s third goal in a 4-1 win over Leicester at Old Trafford on September 24.

The England striker, 19, has bagged three FA Cup goals since then, but has drawn a blank in his 18 subsequent Premier League appearances.

But with Zlatan Ibrahimovic serving the final game of a three-match ban this Saturday, Rashford is set to lead United’s attack at home to West Brom.

Rashford is under pressure to prove to United boss Jose Mourinho he can thrive through the middle, having spent most of the season playing out wide.

In England’s 2-0 World Cup qualifier win over Lithuania at Wembley on Sunday, Rashford came on as a sub for the last half-hour and created more chances than those who played the full 90 minutes.

But Rashford prefers to play through the middle, with Ibrahimovic’s enforced absence and injury to Wayne Rooney handing him a rare chance to do just that.
