Marcus Rashford
Marcus Rashford has scored four goals in two games against Chelsea this season
Marcus Rashford's sensational free-kick winner was like something Cristiano Ronaldo would produce, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said after his side beat Chelsea to reach the Carabao Cup quarter-finals.

The England striker gave United the lead with a penalty after Marcos Alonso fouled Daniel James.

Michy Batshuayi equalised for Chelsea, who had won their last seven games, with a great run from the halfway line and finish from outside the box.But Rashford won the game with a swerving, dipping 30-yard free-kick into the top scorer.

"It was very Cristiano-like," said Solskjaer. "The boy has nerves of steel, He takes a penalty no problem, and then steps up and hits the ball like he did and wins us the game. Fantastic.

"He works too much on it. I've always tried to get him scoring simple tap-ins and being inside the box. He always scores great goals."

The quarter-final draw will take place on Thursday at about 08:45 GMT on BBC Radio 2's Zoe Ball Breakfast Show.

United's decision to name strong team pays off
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer named a strong side, saying he wanted to "keep the momentum going" - with 19-year-old Brandon Williams the only unfamiliar youngster to start.

And it worked as they won for a third game in a row, all away from home - after a run of six games without a win._109469783_rashford.jpg
