Manchester United face Reading in the fourth round of the FA Cup, before taking on Nottingham Forest in the second leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final. They then face Crystal Palace and Leeds United twice in their next three Premier League games, with a Europa League game against Barcelona looming on the horizon. Marcus Rashford continued his rich run of form as Manchester United edged closer to the Premier League’s top four with a 3-0 win over Nottingham Forest.
Rashford, fresh from an impressive World Cup campaign with England, scored the first goal and set up Anthony Martial’s second as United moved within a point of fourth-placed Tottenham. He was off the field when Fred added a late touch to the winner which Rashford headed home.
The 25-year-old was back to his best this season and scored his eighth goal in 13 games for club and country, looking a real threat throughout the match. The way he combines with Martial and Anthony in attack suggests United will do well without the departed Cristiano Ronaldo.
And with the possibility of reinforcements next month, Erik ten Hag’s side will make a real push to break into those Champions League places and stay there in the second half of the season.

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial’s quick strike sent Nottingham Forest through, aided by Fred’s late strike. Two goals in four minutes moved United into fourth-placed Tottenham with a game in hand.
