    Rashford will now have the chance to break the 11-year record when the Red Devils take on Charlton in the League Cup quarter-finals on Tuesday.

    The record consists of scoring in home games in all competitions, and Rooney set the current record in February 2012.

    The 37-year-old netted nine goals against clubs such as Athletic Club, West Brom, Fulham, QPR, Aston Villa and Everton.

    Rashford started his run to the record against FC Sherrif in the Europa League and then followed that up with goals against West Ham in the Premier League and Aston Villa in the League Cup.

    Rashford continued to be in good form during the World Cup in Qatar for England.

    The forward scored three goals for the Three Lions in his five appearances at the tournament.

    Following the break for the World Cup, the 25-year-old netted against Burnley in the League Cup and then notched against Nottingham Forest and Bournemouth in the Premier League.

    The forward then set himself up to beat the record with his goal against Everton.

    Rashford has clearly been in super form for the Red Devils, which has helped fill the void left by Cristiano Ronaldo when he left the club.

    Manager Erik ten Hag wants to sign another forward to add depth to his attacking options, but with the form of Rashford, he may not need to break the bank.

    The club had been linked with the likes of Cody Gakpo and Joao Felix, but the Dutchman moved to Liverpool, and the Atletico Madrid star could be a costly loan move.
