Manchester United recorded a narrow 1-0 victory against Burnley at Turf Moor in the Premier League on Saturday to stay in second position, but Red Devils fans were left unimpressed with Marcus Rashford’s late contribution from the substitutes’ bench.
The 20-year-old forward is struggling for form at the moment with only one goal in his last 15 top flight appearances, and he replaced Jesse Lingard in the 80th minute of the clash in Lancashire.
However, the England international’s lack of confidence showed and while he decided to go on his own instead of setting up Romelu Lukaku for a second United goal because of some poor decision-making, he was also booked for a challenge on Georges-Kevin Nkoudou in injury-time.
Man United supporters were quick to have their say on the attacker’s latest display via social media, and while one said “I fear for him”, another said he “needs the Mkhi treatment”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Sanchez better come cos Rashford is a no no for me… I'm very bored. #MUFC

Hate to say it but Rashford has not progressed since coming in the first team. This season was meant to be his establishing season as a starting player, but unlike Martial who has improved massively this season, Rashford hasn't done so. #mufc

Rashford should be ashamed of himself
Had the chance to assist Lukaku, he didn't. He then went on to receive a yellow card.
Very unconvincing win today but 3 points is all that matters.. #MUFC

Mention any side of Rashford's game that's improved since breaking through the #mufc side. I will wait…

Rashford needs to sort himself out if he wants to get back into the first team, constantly trying too hard to do it on his own! #MUFC
