MARCUS RASHFORD equalled a record held by both Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo then fired out a rallying cry to his team-mates.
The Manchester United forward scored three times in four top-flight games in January and has just been named the Premier League’s Player of the Month for the second time this season.
That makes the 25-year-old the third player from the club to win the accolade twice since the start of last season.
Rashford also won it in September after two goals and two assists in his two outings.
Despite the struggles throughout the 2021/22 season, both David de Gea and Ronaldo scooped the player of the month accolade twice apiece.
Now England international Rashford has joined an exclusive list of United players to have won two Premier League Player of the Month awards in the same season.

Rashford wrote: “The last month couldn't have gone better for me.
“On a personal note, it's the first time I've won these awards together and hopefully not the last.
