London [England], Oct.14 (ANI): Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has rated Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny as the toughest opponent he has faced so far in his career.

The pair came up against each other during United's 3-2 win against Arsenal at home earlier this year, a match that also saw Rashford make his Premier League debut.

In spite of scoring twice in that match, the 18-year-old admitted Koscielny proved "difficult" to play against.

"I think, individually, it would be Laurent Koscielny at Arsenal. He was a difficult defender to play against," Rashford was quoted as saying by goal.com.

Rashford has been in impressive form since making his debut for United in February, scoring a total of 12 goals in all competitions for the Old Trafford club.(ANI)
