Marcus Rashford scores sensational free-kick as Manchester United knock Chelsea out of Carabao Cup

21 October 2020

Manchester United reached the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup after defeating Chelsea 2-1 on Wednesday at Stamford Bridge. 

England forward Marcus Rashford, on the eve of his 22nd birthday, scored a sensational 30-yard free-kick and a penalty to help Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's side knock Chelsea out of the Carabao Cup.

Marcus Rashford opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the 25th minute before Belgian Michy Batshuayi netted the equaliser for the Blues in the second half after a mistake from Harry Maguire.

The England international gave Manchester United a hat-trick of away wins with a stunning strike in the 73rd minute at Stamford Bridge. Rashford’s superb free-kick also ended Chelsea’s seven-match winning streak.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed that Marcus Rashford's free-kick winner against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup reminded him of former United hero Cristiano Ronaldo.

It's very Cristiano-like, isn't it?

The boy has got nerves of steel, takes a penalty no problem, steps up like he does and wins us the game.

What’s next?

United hope to claim their fourth away victory in a row as the Red Devils make the trip to Bournemouth on Saturday in the Premier League, while Frank Lampard’s men travel to Watford on the same day.
