In form striker Marcus Rashford scored twice as Manchester United swept aside Leicester City and kept themselves in the hunt for the Premier League title.

Rashford scored in either half to take his tally for the season to 24 goals, his best return in a single campaign for the club, and in doing so become the first United player to score in seven successive league home games since Wayne Rooney in 2010.

Jadon Sancho also scored his second goal since returning to the team after a three-month absence. Victory moved United to within three points of Manchester City and five of leaders Arsenal.
