Rashford opened the scoring, but give Luke Shaw a lot of the credit for the counter attacking goal. The English left back led the charge and swept an improbable pass through two defenders and around another for Rashford’s finish.
Martial made it 2-0 and United looked to be cruising toward a win if not a blowout, but Doucoure capped off a sublime combination play to get the game within one on the outskirts of stoppage time.[ VIDEO: Premier League highlights ]
