Clip Of Marcus Rashford Sending Ben White Back To Elland Road Has Gone Viral
| Last updated
Ben White's move to Arsenal has led to a video from last season, of Marcus Rashford beating him three times in quick succession, to go viral.
White's £50 million move from Brighton to Arsenal was finally confirmed on Friday, after several weeks of speculation, with Mikel Arteta saying, "Ben was a top target for us and it's great that we've completed his signing."
The 23-year-old, who made it into Gareth Southgate's squad for the Euros this summer but didn't make an appearance, impressed in his debut season in the Premier League for Brighton last season.
His performances earned him the move to Arsenal but now that move has caused a clip from a game against Manchester United to be shared again.
When Brighton faced United last September, only their third game of the season, White was turned inside out, and outside back in, by Rashford, as the England forward scored United's second of the game.

In return for the video going viral, some Arsenal fans were replying with videos of Raphael Varane making errors for Real Madrid.
The defender is on the verge of making his big summer move to United and the two transfers have been compared.
Arsenal fans have convinced themselves that their signing is a better investment than the one their rivals have made for the four time Champions League winner.
Danny Mills also thinks Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should have made a move for the Englishman, and thinks White is too good for Arsenal.
To some extent, the former Leeds United loanee's moment of slight embarrassment was lost within a crazy game, right at the beginning of the campaign.
Brighton took a 40th minute lead through a penalty, only for Lewis Dunk to score an own goal before half time to tie things up.
Rashford's goal looked to have won the game for Solskjaer's team, despite the hosts hitting the woodwork five times, three of those through Leandro Trossard.
Graham Potter's team looked to have got the point they deserved when Solly March equalised in the 95th minute.
However things took an even more dramatic turn when the VAR official noticed a handball in the Brighton box, following a United corner, after the full time whistle had been blown and Bruno Fernandes slotted home the penalty.
