Marcus Rashford overtakes Eric Cantona in Man Utd scoring charts with 83rd Red Devils goal in Southampton thrashing

MARCUS RASHFORD passed Man Utd fan favourite Eric Cantona on the club's all-time scorer's list on Tuesday.

The 23-year-old striker notched his 83rd goal in all competitions against Southampton at Old Trafford.

It took him one past French genius Cantona and on his way up the list of scorers.

Rashford turned home Mason Greenwood's cross as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men ran riot on Southampton.

He was withdrawn on the hour mark and replaced by Daniel James to grab a well-earned respite during a busy period.

Rashford said on BT Sport: "He's (Cantona) obviously a top player that did a lot for the club so I'm pleased to go past him today and I want to score lots more goals and help the team."


Next up on the list of Man Utd scorers is David Beckham on 85.

Ahead of him are Cristiano Ronaldo (118), Andy Cole (121) and his current manager Solskjaer (126).

Ruud van Nistelrooy scored 150 goals for the Old Trafford side while stalwarts Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs racked up 155 and 160 respectively.

Rashford has a long way to go to catch United's all-time top-scorer Wayne Rooney.

The current derby boss netted 253 times in all competitions – 93 more than second-placed Giggs.

United thrashed Southampton 9-0 at Old Trafford to move level on points with leaders Manchester City.

Solskjaer's men ran riot on the 10-man Saints to get back to winning ways after just one point from two games against Sheffield United and Arsenal.

Rashford added: "It's always good to score lots of goals and we're happy. We needed three points, we've dropped some points in recent games and needed to get back to winning ways."
