Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has paid credit to both the club and his teammates after scoring his 30th goal of the season in Thursday night's 4-1 win over Chelsea at Old Trafford.

Back in the matchday squad after missing the wins over Wolves and Bournemouth through injury and illness respectively, the England international notched United's fourth goal of the night, pouncing on some shambolic Chelsea defending.

He had stepped off the bench in the first half to replace Antony, after he was forced off on a stretcher through injury. Rashford's tap-in from close quarters capped off a fine evening for United as they wrapped up a top four finish and Champions League qualification for next season.

They had gone into the game requiring just a point to get the job done.
