    It didn’t take long for Rashford to make an impact on the tie, with the 25-year-old’s form showing no signs of slowing down.

    In the sixth minute of the game, the forward claimed possession inside his own half before charging towards the Forest defence.

    Rashford proceeded to dribble past Remo Freuler and Joe Worrall before firing past Wayne Hennessey at his near post.

    Speaking to talkSPORT, England legend Stuart Pearce was highly impressed with what he saw from the United man.

    He said: “That was a goal from a player that’s oozing confidence.

    “He’s picked the ball up on the halfway line, he’s driven down the line with it, he’s decided not to check back and play backwards like you see time and time again.

    “He just kept running, Freuler comes towards him, Worrall comes towards him. He went between the two and ended up driving down that access where you think it’s going to be a big problem for Forest tonight. Great goal.”

    Rashford is now on 18 goals for the season across all competitions, with his form coinciding with United’s strong run of results.

    Wout Weghorst then doubled United’s lead on the stroke of half-time, the Dutchman scoring his first goal for the club as he fired into the roof of the net on the rebound.

    Forest thought they had found an equaliser through Sam Surridge after Rashford’s effort, but VAR ruled out his goal for offside.
