Manchester United interim chief Ole Gunnar Solskjaer praised Marcus Rashford after a 2-1 victory over Brighton.

Rashford scored a superb goal to put his team to win 2-0 in the English Championship in Old Trafford and caused the seagulls many other problems United's perfect start with Solskjaer extended to a seventh game in all competitions.

The 21-year-old Englishman, who walked away from Pascal Gross before hitting a good kick in the top corner, scored five goals in six league games after signing the Norwegian in December.

And when asked if he thought Rashford was currently the best center forward of the division, Solskjaer said: "You can defend a lot of attackers, but I'm glad he's on my team.

"Harry Kane is injured, so maybe that gives him a better chance of being the best right now.

"Nobody hits him in the rhythm of work, nobody beats him in attitude and at the moment he is very confident in front of the goal. He finishes, he tries to shoot, he does not think twice about it.

"He made a chance for Jesse (Lingard) and I can not believe how Jesse did not score on that chance in the second post."

"So at the moment, I think he's playing the best football of his career."
