Marcus Rashford has been named the Premier League player of the month for February, equalling Mohamed Salah’s record for the most awards in a season.
The England forward had a near-perfect month for Manchester United, scoring five goals in four league matches, as Erik ten Hag’s side took 10 points from a possible 12.
Rashford scored in victories against Crystal Palace, Leeds United and Leicester City, while also netting in a 2-2 draw against Leeds.
His Premier League tally for the season stands at 14 goals, behind only Ivan Toney (15), Harry Kane (18) and Erling Haaland (27) in the scoring charts.
Rashford also clinched the monthly awards for January and September, meaning he has matched Salah, who won three in 2017-18, for the most wins in a single campaign.
The award was Rashford’s fourth overall in his career, leaving him three adrift of the record tally that Kane and Sergio Aguero share.
Rashford’s goals have helped United consolidate their position in the hunt for a top-four finish and Champions League qualification, sitting third, seven clear of fifth-placed Liverpool despite losing 7-0 to the Reds last weekend.
