Marcus Rashford’s assist for Paul Pogba‘s goal against Burnley last night means the Manchester United forward has continued his run of making a goal contribution in every Premier League away game this season.
The 1-0 win at Turf Moor means the Red Devils have won seven and drawn one of their eight matches on the road this campaign and Rashford’s performances have undoubtedly played a key role.
Even so, a number of fans on Twitter were surprised by the statistic, with some even saying that, despite his assist yesterday evening, he didn’t have one of his best games:
Honestly, I don’t know how he pulls it off. Even when he isn’t performing at his best, he scores or assists anyways.

United’s counter-attacking style away from Old Trafford certainly helps Rashford. He gets into pockets of space, either on the left or right flank, and he is able to make driving runs forward into the box.
To be fair to the England international, his form at home isn’t too shabby either, having scored 14 goals in 28 games this season.
