Neves ran towards the corner pointing at his temple – a celebration Rashford has regularly used this season – before being mobbed by his team-mates.

No one knows entirely for sure why Rashford points to his head.

However, popular opinion believes by pointing to his mind – Rashford is highlighting mental health.

The free school dinners hero has been open about his battles mentally – admitting it hindered him during the 2021-22 season.

He told Sky Sports after scoring against West Ham in October: “I was struggling at times with more mental things.

“It wasn’t really my own performance but other things off the pitch. That’s the biggest difference from last season.

“Too often last season, I wasn’t in the right headspace for games. I wasn’t surprised by some of the stuff that was happening.”

Another theory is Rashford has regularly suffered with the noise and pressure leading the line at Old Trafford.

Closing his eyes while pointing to his head could also be about shutting out external distractions and unwanted criticism.

This allows him to do what he does best; score goals.
