Former Manchester United player Louis Saha believes that Reds striker Marcus Rashford is currently the best player in the Premier League.
Rashford has been in brilliant form for Erik ten Hag’s side so far this season, with the 25-year-old recording 21 goals and eight assists in 34 appearances in all competitions. The United ace hit the mark again at the weekend: he scored for the fourth successive game in a 2-0 win over Leeds United.
The England international has scored eight league goals since the domestic campaign resumed, having scored in all but one of the Reds’ top-flight games since the restart, to take his top-flight tally to 12 in the bell. He is currently fourth in the Golden Boot race, behind Erling Haaland (25), Harry Kane (17) and Ivan Toney (14).

And former Reds striker Saha believes the striker has been ‘unplayable’ for United, hailing the Academy graduate as the best player in the division.
“For me, there is absolutely no question that Marcus Rashford is the best player in the Premier League at the moment,” he told Paddy Power. “A lot of players played well and scored a lot of goals like Erling Haaland, but in terms of quality and the complete package, since December you can’t play.
“He has the confidence and he’s playing incredibly well. Wout Weghorst hasn’t helped him much either. The system reminds me a bit of Kylian Mbappé and Olivier Giroud for France. When you have a player with full confidence, it’s going to be difficult for any defender to deal with. Rashford. He is very intelligent and will not get into situations where he will be bullied. There is no better player in the Premier League than Rashford at the moment.”
Rashford will be looking to register his fourth Europa League goal of the campaign when the Reds take on Barcelona in the first leg of the play-offs on Thursday night.
