With fixtures against Crystal Palace and Leeds United postponed due to the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, United only played twice in the league during the month – Leicester City on 1 September and Arsenal three days later.
But the Reds were still impressive in clinching a couple of wins, with Rashford proving key in both encounters.
In the away clash with the Foxes, Rashford kept his composure to slot a pass through to team-mate Jadon Sancho for the only goal of the game.
Rashford then played a part in all three strikes against Arsenal, as United saw off the league leaders to rise up to fifth in the table.
First, he set up a debut goal for new boy Antony, before scoring twice himself, at the Stretford End, to end the Gunners’ unbeaten run.
