Rashford intercepted Thomas Partey’s pass in the Gunners’ half and then received the ball from Bruno Fernandes.
The United star then showed a beautiful piece of skill to beat Partey and open up the space.
He then unleashed a venomous early strike low and into the bottom corner, giving Aaron Ramsdale no chance.
After beating his England team-mate, Rashford ran across to the corner flag and performed his new celebration – pointing to his temple – as he stood motionless in front of the home Arsenal fans.
The goal was Rashford’s ninth in all competitions since club football resumed after the World Cup – more than any other player in Europe’s top five leagues.
It also ended a nightmare record of 26 away Premier League starts without a goal, dating back to December 2020.
And plenty of football fans on Twitter were understandably delighted by the No10’s latest finish.
One said: “Rashford is on fire!”
Another wrote: “Marcus Rashford, a different breed this season. What a goal!”
And Gary Lineker added: “Stunning goal from @MarcusRashford. A thing of beauty.”
But United’s joy lasted just seven minutes.
Arsenal recycled a short corner well with Eddie Nketiah headed in from Granit Xhaka’s inch-perfect cross to level the top-of-the-table clash.
