We need to talk about Manchester United’s most dangerous player up front, Marcus Rashford could end Liverpool’s title dreams next Sunday in a flash.

Apart from Paul Pogba who plays in midfield, Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford remains as one of the key players for next Sunday’s match against Liverpool at Old Trafford.

The Premier League will give us one of the most exciting matches of the season and the young player is right in the middle of a possible thrilling evening, he is the one whom Jürgen Klopp’s defense should be very afraid of.

All we need to do is look at the current form he’s been showing during training sessions and we can see why he is the most dangerous attacking player that the Red Devils have at the moment, Rashford has speed and dribbling skills to spare against any rival.

Old Trafford will be a fortress that will give him the necessary playground to showcase the full extent of his abilities against the most formidable opponent, this player alone of the one who can end Liverpool’s title dreams in the span of 90 minutes with a few moments of brilliance that could happen in a matter of seconds.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been talking about Rashford’s capabilities since he started his caretaker manager’s job 13 matches ago, and he has done it with good reason.

We do have to give part of this credit to Dutch manager Louis van Gaal, who has arguably one of the better eyes for talent in football history as Rashford has only been the latest of a long line of world-class players who have made their debut under the Dutch manager.

In fact, the Englishman could make a claim to become the best striker that the former Ajax and FC Barcelona manager has ever helped to make his debut.

Apart from Patrick Kluivert, we can’t really think of another forward with the skills as sharpened as Rashford has at the moment and with the potential of becoming one of the best English players in modern football.

All the lad needed was more confidence from his manager, and the ideal space to let loose with his creativity.

His time under Jose Mourinho proved that there are still football managers who haven’t realized that players are getting more and more precocious in the modern era, Rashford was ready to step up for the challenge since the Portuguese manager arrived at the club but Jose has always been a bit slow to adapt to the present as other managers have been able to do it.

Things have massively changed for Rashford with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, a coach who has always been keen on working with young talents and someone who knows Rashford very well from his years in the academy as a manager of the youngsters.

Marcus Rashford has been tipped to become one of Manchester United’s greatest talents in recent times from the very first moment he started playing in the academy, his biggest opportunity to prove this will come on Sunday against Liverpool FC.

We will all keep a close eye on what the youngster can do and we can even place a bet on him becoming a real headache for all the Reds’ defenders at Old Trafford.

Things have come down to what the Red Devils might be able to do against Jürgen Klopp’s side next weekend, the rest of the season might be decided for either of both squads after we know the result from this thrilling match between the two biggest clubs in English football.

Rashford has everything to make history and finally graduate as one of Manchester United’s biggest stars in recent memory, it’s all up to him.
