LETHAL Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has been given a fitting new nickname by a club legend.
The in-form England star has bagged 16 goals in 17 appearances in all competitions since the World Cup.
A post shared by Marcus Rashford MBE (@marcusrashford)
The 25-year-old's latest double came in Sunday's 3-0 dismissal of Leicester at Old Trafford.
His 25th-minute opener came after a loose ball from Wout Faes was jumped on by Bruno Fernandes who threaded a ball through for Rashford to finish.
And, soon after the restart, he effectively killed the Foxes off when Fred played him in to slot the ball in under keeper Danny Ward.
After the game, Rashford posted a photo of himself alongside Luke Shaw and Victor Lindelof on Instagram with the caption '+3 points'.

And there was a great reply from retired France left-back Evra, 41, who won five Prem titles and the Champions League with the Red Devils.
He dubbed Rashford 'The Punisher' and added three flame emojis to his post.
