Bukayo Saka does Rashford’s celebration after giving Arsenal the lead vs Man Utd
Bukayo Saka and Marcus Rashford cancelled each other out with superb goals and the same celebration as Arsenal and Manchester United played out a thriller in the Premier League.
Rashford opened the scoring with a rifled effort 17 minutes into what would turn out to be one of the games of the seasons at the Emirates. The England international celebrated by running to the corner flag and pointing to the side of his face.
Eddie Nketiah replied for the Gunners with a superb header to make it 2-2, before Saka put Arsenal in front just after half-time with a strike that was the equal of Rashford's.

And as the pair matched each other on quality, they also shared the same celebration, with Saka choosing to point at the side of his head in the same manner as his England colleague.
It didn't go unnoticed by fans, who commented on the similarity on social media. One fan wrote: "Saka hit the same celebration as Rashford."

Someone else said: "Saka hits the celebration like Dr. Rashford." A third person added: "Saka did the Rashford celebration." While a fourth user said: "Saka did the Rashford celebration but I’d be *shocked* if there’s any sort of beef between the two. Both just seem too nice for that sort of thing."
Indeed, there is no suggestion that there is any hostility between the two. Rashford seemed to first use the celebration after scoring against Wolves on New Year's Eve.
Although it is not known exactly what the celebration stands for, it has been suggested that it could be a hint at his previous mental health struggles.
Earlier in the season, Rashford spoke about his poor form and how he'd been suffering away from the pitch. "It’s a completely different energy around the club and the training ground," Rashford said after scoring against West Ham in October. "That puts me in a better headspace and I just feel really motivated now. That’s the area I was struggling in.
"I was struggling at times with more mental things. It wasn’t really my own performance but other things off the pitch. That’s the biggest difference from last season.
"I get that it’s your job to speak about what happens on the pitch but for the players, we have to get into the right headspace for every game. Too often last season, I wasn’t in the right headspace for games. I wasn’t surprised by some of the stuff that was happening."
