Rashford's message to Eriksen

In a tweet, Rashford said that although he is still raving about scoring his 100th goal for United, he had to send special thanks to Eriksen for setting him up with the sumptuous assist.

Rashford admitted after the game that he wasn't at his best mentally last season, according to Sky Sports.

"I was struggling at times with more mental things. It wasn't really my own performance but other things off the pitch. That's the biggest difference from last season."

The winger added that things have changed at the club now.

"It's a complete different energy around the club and the training ground. That puts me in a better headspace and I just feel really motivated now. That's the area I was struggling in."

Rashford joins exclusive club

Sports Brief earlier reported on Marcus Rashford joining an exclusive club, after scoring his 100th goal for Man United from a sublime Christian Eriksen cross.

The forward, who made his senior debut in 2015, needed 317 appearances to reach the landmark. He is now among 20 players at Old Trafford to score 100 or more goals in a Red Devils shirt.

Wayne Rooney remains United's all-time goal scorer, with the legendary forward boasting an incredible 253 goals for the club.
