Cape Town - Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford could well be on the brink of realising one of his dreams when the Red Devils face Manchester City in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night.

Rashford scored a memorable winner against City at the Etihad last season as he continued his incredible rise through the ranks at United, and is hoping to score his dream goal this week.

“It would be a home goal against City, definitely! Scoring away was a massive moment as well for me, so I can only imagine what a home goal would be like,” Rashford said when asked by Inside United what his dream goal would be.

The 18-year old forward fondly remembers that goal as he explained: "The game was quite an even one so it could have gone either way.

"We were attacking and then they were attacking. They had a bit more of the ball but they weren’t really threatening us.

"There were two times before when I got on a one-v-one with [Martin Demichelis] and he just nicked the ball off me. I knew what I needed to do the next time I got the ball so I did it.

"Then I was against [goalkeeper Joe Hart] and it was just about relaxing, composing myself and that was what I did.

"After it went in, the fans were too far away but it was a good feeling with everyone coming towards you. To win the game 1-0 as well, to hold out as a team was a good feeling."
