Rashford got the better of Leicester’s Kelechi Iheanacho, Fulham goalkeeper Bernd Leno and winger Manor Solomon, Tottenham right-back Emerson Royal and Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins.

Rashford, who was also named Manchester United’s Player of the Month, tweeted: “Over the moon to win MU & PL Player of the Month again.

“I couldn’t have done it without the other guys and the staff. Setbacks will happen but as long as we stay focused and together we will always see the light at the end of the tunnel!”

On being voted United’s player of the month, he added: “It’s always good to be in the conversation, of course.

“To be awarded Player of the Month I feel, especially in the last three months, that you could give it to anyone.
