It has been just over a year since Marcus Rashford broke onto the scene at Manchester United in that Europa League clash against Midtjylland.

The 19-year-old has never before featured in the first team for the Red Devils before profiting from an injury to Anthony Martial in the warm-up, and the English star hasn’t looked back since.

He netted twice on the night to seal United’s passage through to the last 16 of Europe’s secondary competition, and then he made his Premier League debut just three days later at home to Arsenal, where he also scored a brace to secure Louis van Gaal’s side a much-needed 3-2 victory at Old Trafford.

That Arsenal game was exactly a year ago today, and since then Rashford has netted the winner in the Manchester derby, and also made his England debut against Australia in May 2016, where he scored the opener in a 2-1 win for Roy Hodgson’s men, and indeed went to Euro 2016 with his country.

Rashford has gone from strength to strength since then and is now an important part of the United squad, so what other young players are waiting for their opportunity in the first team?

Well, we took a look at Chelsea’s pool of young talent, and identified TWO players who could be the next Rashford…
