That’s the verdict of legendary Red Devils defender Gary Neville. Rashford was a livewire from the first minute as United took all three points with a 2-0 win over Newcastle last night. The 21-year-old forward scored his seventh goal of the season to seal his side’s fourth consecutive win at St James’ Park.**PREDICT FIVE RESULTS AND WIN £25,000 – FREE TO PLAY HERE** Magpies skipper Jamaal Lascelles’ attempts to intimidate Rashford with his physicality proved fruitless as the youngster took the game to the hosts. Neville was impressed with the England striker and is pleased to see new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer giving him chances in a striking role. With three goals in four appearances, Neville says he is not surprised that Rashford is keeping Romelu Lukaku out of the starting XI. He told Sky Sports: “The spring in the counter-attack is there and Rashford playing up front is fantastic – I love him to bits. “He’s played nearly 150 games at the age of 21 and his potential is enormous. “It’s actually now stepping up beyond the potential to where he will be a top-class player. “People will talk about Romelu Lukaku and how is he getting back in the team. “Don’t worry about that, worry about the kid that’s playing that’s going to devastate teams. “He gives them mobility. They just need more energy up front. Lukaku has not been at his best. “He has earned his chance. He gives them something different and he is a fantastic player. “He is on the right trajectory to become something really special for Manchester United.” The Red Devils are now just three points behind Arsenal are they chase a Champions League qualification place. United face Reading when they kick their FA Cup campaign off this Saturday (12.30pm).
