Marcus Rashford took just six minutes to respond to Manchester United’s 7-0 blitzing at the hands of Liverpool, doing so with a stunning strike to open the scoring against Real Betis.
United suffered one of the worst defeats in their history at Anfield on Sunday and needed to bounce back at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
Erik ten Hag named the exact same side and they made the best possible start in the Europa League round of 16 first leg clash.
Wout Weghorst had a goal chalked off for offside but then moments later, Rashford put United ahead with a netbuster of an effort.
The ball dropped to him and he sent the defender sliding on the deck with a deft feint before smashing in a devastating finish past former Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.
The shot was hit with such venom that it nearly broke the net. Rashford notched his 26th goal of the season and his 18th since he returned from the World Cup with England.
