Harry Kane’s stats at Marcus Rashford’s age remind Man Utd fans he is their hottest prospect
MARCUS RASHFORD still has some way to go to emulate Harry Kane – but he is well on track to do just that.
The two strikers came up against each other as Tottenham hosted Manchester United on Super Sunday.

While Kane is the first name on the team-sheet for Spurs, Rashford has never really nailed down a regular starting spot up front.
But interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has preferred Rashford to Romelu Lukaku, and the 21-year-old has not let him down.
And as this graphic from Sky Sports shows, Rashford’s stats are staggering compared to Kane when he was the same age.
Rashford has made 148 club appearances, scoring 39 times. And a large proportion of these games have been him appearing from the bench.

When Kane was at the stage Rashford is at now, he had made 100 club appearances, scoring 25 times. He had also come off the bench a fair few times, but loan spells with Leyton Orient, Millwall, Norwich and Leicester meant he usually started.
