marcus-rashford-is-‘best-player-in-premier-league-right-now’-ahead-of-erling-haaland-and-martin-odegaard

Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha has insisted that Marcus Rashford is the best player in the Premier League right now ahead of Erling Haaland and Martin Odegaard.

Rashford came under mounting pressure last season after a huge dip in form, with the United star scoring only five times in 32 appearances.

Rashford, who is under contract until 2024, has scored an impressive 21 times in 34 appearances across all competitions for United this season.

And the in-form United forward has been in blistering form since the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, with the Red Devils in contention for a top-four finish.

Speaking to Paddy Power, Saha believes that Rashford has been “unplayable” since the World Cup and claimed there is “no better player” in the league than him.

“For me, there is absolutely no question that Marcus Rashford is the best player in the Premier League right now,” he said.

“A lot of players played well and scored loads of goals like Erling Haaland, but in terms of quality and the full package, from December he’s been unplayable.

“He’s got the confidence and he’s playing unbelievably well. He’s also not really been helped by Wout Weghorst.

“The system reminds me a little bit of Kylian Mbappe and Olivier Giroud for France.

“When you have a player in full confidence, it’s going to be hard for any defender to cope with Rashford.

“He’s very smart and won’t get into situations where he’ll get bullied.

“There is no better player in the Premier League than Rashford right now.”
