Who’d have thought he could do it again?!
Marcus Rashford wrote himself into Manchester United folklore as he bagged two goals in three minutes against Arsenal, and sent social media into meltdown as he did it.
The 18-year-old was in fine form as he made his Premier League debut, scoring two and setting up Ander Herrera as United saw off Arsenal 3-2 at Old Trafford.
Twitter was on fire as United’s latest hero announced himself and here’s the best of the reaction:

Poor Eden. Then this guy said what we’ve all been thinking this week:

Yeah, me neither mate. This bloke managed to capture exactly what Louis van Gaal wrote down in his notepad:
Marcus Rashford you horny bastard

Meanwhile, not all of us were getting too carried away:

Danny Welbeck tried to remind us that he’s the original Rashford though:
"Some goals by Rashford, he's the new Welbeck!"
"What a header by Welbeck, he could well be the new Marcus Rashford"

Welbeck’s goal had many wishing it was last week all over again:

But it was Ander Herrera who finished the Gunners off, thanks to Rashford’s assist:
Brilliant goal from Herrera, and oh what's that Rashford assist… Get in!!!

Even Mesut Ozil’s volley to make it 3-2 wasn’t enough, but did prompt this beaut from Emmanuel Eboue:

That one even knocked Louis van Gaal off his feet:
