MARCUS RASHFORD has seen his headed goal cruelly awarded to Aston Villa goalkeeper Tom Heaton after a review.

The England striker thought he’d scored yet again for Manchester United as his fine run of form continued.

However, the Goal Accreditation Panel have deemed that it was actually an own goal.

With Aston Villa leading 1-0, Rashford turned a header onto the inside of the post shortly before half-time.

As the ball span across the line, it touched Heaton and went into the back of the net.

Replays initially appeared inconclusive as it appeared the ball may have spun into the far corner had Heaton not intervened.

Had the goal been given to Rashford it would have been the sixth game in a row he had netted in.

The goal made it 1-1 at Old Trafford but there was more drama to come.

Victor Lindelof put the Red Devils ahead with a back post header.

But just moments later, Tyrone Mings finished brilliantly from inside the box to level the score back up at 2-2 and that’s how it finished.

It was a fine header from Rashford
