Man Utd top scorers against Big Six: Rashford goes top as Fernandes completes set, passes Ronaldo

Matthew Stead

Wayne Rooney has been caught by new leader Marcus Rashford, while Bruno Fernandes has finally completed his set of goals against the rest of the Big Six.

From a fairly obvious top five to an unlikely challenge from Javier Hernandez and Ashley Young, here is every player to have scored for Man Utd in Premier League matches against Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham since the start of the 2010/11 season – the first in which they comprised the top six.

We have even broken it down into goals against each opponent before confirming the overall totals. These numbers are accurate as of the last Man Utd game versus a Big Six side (4-1 v Chelsea on May 25, 2023).
