Manchester United wonderkid Marcus Rashford pictured with Premier League trophy aged 9

What a week he's been having...but should we be surprised!

Success seems to be grained into some players at a early age. The likes of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and David Beckham all showed that they were going to go on an be brilliant players even when they were youngsters.

And another Manchester United academy prodigy who has stormed into the first time is 18-year-old Marcus Rashford who has been with the Red Devils for over a decade now. 

While he's now become a bit of a house hold name, less than a week ago we're not sure if many Man United fans had ever heard of him let alone see him play.

That was until Thursday evening when Rashford was given his Man United debut and scored twice as they thumped  FC Midtjylland 5-1.

And then came his Premier League debut and he stunned Arsenal by scoring twice to make it four goals in just as many days! 

It looks like Rashford is destined for great things but we shouldn't be too shocked by that after this picture that the young forward's brother put on Instagram.

Recognise that young chap hugging the Premier League trophy? Yep! that's Marcus Rashford and he's with Man United's U9s celebrating the senior side's 2006/7 Premier League title win!

We wonder how long it will be until Rashford is lifting it for real...
