On paper, this looked like a tricky group when it was drawn, but United started the campaign off with a 2-1 victory away to Paris Saint-Germain and looked to take charge of the group with victory over the Bundesliga leaders, who had beaten Istanbul Basaksehir 2-0 in their opener.

After a tight opening to the match, United took the lead via Mason Greenwood’s first-ever shot in the Champions League on 21 minutes, after a delightful through ball from Paul Pogba and, following a VAR review for offside, the goal was awarded.

Donny van Beek was named among in the starting lineup and produced a solid display. However, the game changed in United’s favour on 68 minutes when he was replaced by Bruno Fernandes.

Fernandes played in Rashford — who had been introduced five minutes earlier — and the England man, although the linesman had raised his flag, finished off superbly past Leipzig goalkeeper Peter Gulacsi on 76 minutes.

Again United benefited from VAR as a review showed Rashford was in his own half when Fernandes passed it and the goal stood.

Rashford made it 3-0 four minutes later as he rifled another effort past Gulasci.

The 22-year-old had the chance to seal his first United hat trick when they were awarded a penalty three minutes from time, but he allowed Anthony Martial to step up and score his first of the campaign.

Edinson Cavani had a late goal disallowed for offside before Rashford sealed his hat trick in stoppage time after being let in by Martial.
