M- Mar­cus Rash­ford is rel­ish­ing the op­por­tu­nity to t ake on Manch­ester City again, re­veal­ing his 2016 derby win­ner for Manch­ester United was the high­light of his young ca­reer.

The Eng­land for­ward has won the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League, as well as fea­tur­ing for his coun­try at two ma­jor tour­na­ments, but Rash­ford harks back to the very start of his time in the United first team for a mo­ment he trea­sures above all oth­ers.

In the 2015-16 sea­son, less than a month on from his de­but for the club, Rash­ford net­ted the only goal of the game at City to set­tle the derby - and he re­flected on that strike ahead of to­day's lat­est clash.

"For me, per­son­ally, to score the win­ner there was the big­gest feel­ing in my ca­reer," the 21-year-old told United's of­fi­cial web­site.

"Ob­vi­ously, win­ning tro­phies is al­ways your aim, but I'd say, on a per­sonal note, that was the big­gest feel­ing I've had.

"Der­bies are al­ways tough games, but I think they're the games in which you al­ways learn the most. There can be games where you win 3-0 or 4-0 and every­one's happy but what have you learnt from the game it­self?”
