LEFT HIS MARC MARCUS RASHFORD has put Chelsea to shame with his incredible goalscoring exploits since the World Cup.
The forward travelled to Qatar having scored four goals in 14 Prem appearances this term.

Chelsea’s form in front of goal has been abject
But he has taken a huge leap since returning from the Middle East.
Rashford’s double against Leicester on Sunday made it 16 goals in 17 appearances in all competitions since English football’s resumption.
This is a huge contrast to goal-shy Chelsea.
Graham Potter’s side are on a dismal run of just two wins in their last 15 games, stretching back to before the World Cup.
In their 11 matches since Qatar, the Blues have managed just SIX goals – TEN fewer than Rashford.
Of Chelsea’s measly six strikes Kai Havertz has netted twice – with Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly, Joao Felix and Mason Mount grabbing one each.
Potter’s men have crashed out of both domestic cups, are 1-0 down on aggregate in the Champions League round of 16 and sit tenth in Premier League table – 11 points off the top four.
The 47-year-old has the worst record of any Chelsea manager in the Premier League era.
Man United, on the other hand, are on the up under Erik ten Hag.
Rashford’s red-hot form, ten goals in ten Prem games since the resumption, has catapulted United into the title race.
The Red Devils are just five points behind leaders Arsenal.
United’s No10 now has as many goals in all competitions, 23, as Chelsea do in the Premier League.
Rashford’s goal and assist in the 2-2 draw at Barcelona also put his team in a good position to progress in the Europa League.
And he has scored five goals in five League Cup matches on the way to this weekend’s final.
While level with Rashford, Chelsea have even been OUTSCORED in the Prem by Erling Haaland.
The Norwegian has 26 for Manchester City, three more than Chelsea’s total.
