Super sub Marcus Rashford gets 9, Mason Greenwood 7, Luke Shaw 8: Manchester United player ratings v Leipzig

A stunning 18-minute hat-trick for England striker

Marcus Rashford came off the bench to score an 18-minute hat-trick as Manchester United thrashed Leipzig 5-0 in the Champions League for a second straight win to open the group stage.

The England forward came on in the 63rd minute and slotted home to make it 2-0, building on the first-half opener by Mason Greenwood that made the 19-year-old United’s second youngest scorer in the Champions League after Wayne Rooney.

Rashford’s quick feet saw him charge through Leipzig’s defence and drive in his second goal in the 78th minute and, after Anthony Martial made it 4-0 from the penalty spot, the France striker teed up Rashford to complete his hat-trick in the second minute of injury time.

United opened Group H with a 2-1 win at Paris Saint-Germain and can look forward to a double-header with Istanbul Basaksehir either side of the upcoming international break, knowing two wins could seal qualification to the knockout stage.
