Rashford was robbed of the opportunity by teammates to score

BrotherStriker Marcus Rashford was angry when junior Anthony Elanga competed for a shot and missed a good chance to eat at the end of the 1-1 draw at the end of Man Utd’s Premier League match on April 2.

In the fifth minute of stoppage time, when the score was 1-1, Rashford received the ball in the box after a bad clearance from Hamza Choudhury. The England striker took a beat and pushed the ball past Daniel Amartey and Hamza Choudhury, entering the penalty area.

When Rashford prepares to finish in the face-to-face position Kasper Schmeichel, Elanga quickly turned around to perform a kick. But Elanga missed the center of the ball, causing both him and Rashford to fall to the field, and the ball slowly rolled to Schmeichel’s position. In the case of a shot to the away team’s net, the goal was also disallowed because the line referee raised a flag to signal Elanga was offside.

After falling to the ground and missing a delicious opportunity, Rashford looked back at his juniors with surprise, then slammed his hands on the ground in frustration.

Above Twittermany fans took this situation to ironic Man Utd. “The fact that Elanga tackles the ball when Rashford has a chance to finish in the box is like the summation of Man Utd’s whole season. An unbelievable club,” a fan wrote with a mocking voice.

“Man Utd could get a penalty if Elanga didn’t touch the ball stupidly,” said another fan. “Elanga can get a red card for knocking out Rashford in a scoring position”, this fan sarcastically.

“Imagine the outrage of Man Utd fans, if everything was reversed, with Rashford being the one to stop Elanga from scoring,” this person asked.

Before Leicester, Rashford started from the bench Cristiano Ronaldo absent due to illness. In the 55th minute, the 24-year-old striker replaced Scott McTominay, but the only mark left was the breakthrough in the fifth minute of injury time. Meanwhile, Elanga kicked the full 90 minutes, but only one shot was blocked by the Leicester player.

Despite having to play at Old Trafford, Leicester were better and got ahead in the 63rd minute thanks to Kelechi Iheanacho’s close-range header. Three minutes after the goal, the home side equalized with Fred’s kick – the most prominent player in Man Utd’s midfield – after Bruno Fernandes’ long shot.

In the remaining time, Leicester missed many delicious opportunities. Iheanacho’s turn went wide from five yards, and Wesley Fofana’s header failed to beat David De Gea. When Maddison hit the home side, VAR again denied the goal because Iheanacho fouled Varane in the previous situation.

This result makes Man Utd continue to lose ground in the race for tickets to the Champions League next season. Ralf Rangnick’s army currently drops to seventh with 51 points, three points behind Tottenham and three points behind Arsenal, but one and two matches ahead of two opponents, respectively. In the next match on April 9, Man Utd was a guest of Everton – the club is ranked 17th and struggles with the relegation battle.
