Rashford hits out at VAR

The 25-year-old thought he had achieved the milestone earlier on in the first half but the goal was chalked off by VAR.

The goal had initially been given only for VAR to rule it out after Wout Weghorst was adjudged to have been offside.

Rashford later took to Twitter to express his fury at seeing his goal fail to stand.

"Unfortunately, VAR got the better of me again today. That's 3 times this season (angry emoji)," the forward tweeted.
"Breaking the record for consecutive goals at OT would have been incredible, but I'm proud to have equalled Dennis Viollet’s record," he added.

Rashford recovers in ice chamber

Rashford continued his goalscoring run in the 3-0 victory over Nottingham Forest in the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final and ahead of the match revealed his ice chamber recovery, as earlier reported by Sports Brief.
