Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has emerged as a nominee for PFA Youth Player of the Year Award following the announcement on Saturday morning.

England international Rashford has been in very good form for the Red Devils since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was made the Manchester United manager in December.

The Manchester United Academy graduate struggled at the start of the season under Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho who led the Red Devils to their worst start to the season in the Premier League.

Jose Mourinho paid the price for that poor start with his job and the former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager was swiftly replaced by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who led Manchester United to just one defeat in his first 17 games in charge of the team.

The former club striker masterminded an unbeaten run in his first 12 league games before the 2-0 loss at Arsenal.

In total, Marcus Rashford has scored 10 goals in addition to the provision of six assists in the league this season.

He was named on the list alongside Welsh international David Brooks of South Coast club Bournemouth, West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice, Liverpool right-back Trent Alexandre-Arnold and the Manchester City duo of Bernardo Silva and Raheem Sterling.
