Man Utd 3-0 Charlton Athletic: Rashford double send hosts through

Published

on

Marcus Rashford scored twice as a much-changed Manchester United made it eight consecutive wins in all competitions by beating Charlton 3-0 at Old Trafford to reach the Carabao Cup semi-finals..



United manager Erik ten Hag made eight changes following Friday’s FA Cup victory over Everton and handed 17-year-old midfielder Kobbie Mainoo his debut, but it did not disrupt his side’s momentum as second-half substitute Rashford continued his fine form with a late double (90, 94).

The England international has now scored 15 goals this season, while his impressive cameo saw him find the net for a sixth game in a row and an eighth straight match at Old Trafford. Antony’s fine left-footed strike from distance had earlier put United ahead (21).

League One Charlton, who knocked out Brighton in the previous round, threatened to equalise in the second half before Rashford’s goals but lacked quality in the final third as the hosts secured their ninth consecutive win at Old Trafford.

The draw for the Carabao Cup semi-finals will take place after Southampton’s last-eight clash with Manchester City at St Mary’s on Wednesday
