Rashford scored one goal in each half as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men maintained their perfect away record in the season.

United have also won their past 10 matches away from home, recording comeback wins in all games of the season.

The Old Trafford giants went behind five minutes into the match when Dean Henderson, the club’s second-choice goalkeeper who had a two-year loan stint at Sheffield United, was robbed of the ball and David McGoldrick tapped into an empty net.

Rashford equalised after 26 minutes when he took Victor Lindelof’s pass in his stride and hit a powerful shot that left Aaron Ramsdale, Sheffield United goalkeeper, sprawling in futility.

The 23-year-old made it 3-1 early in the second half after Anthony Martial had broken his 491-minute goal drought to put United in the lead on 33 minutes.

Although McGoldrick completed his brace with a fluke goal in the 87th minute, Henderson produced a world-class save in added time to preserve the points for Man United.

The Blades stay rooted to the bottom of the league without a win and just a point from 13 matches, while Man United climbed to sixth on the log with 23 points, five more points away from Liverpool in first position.
