The England striker had just left his team's Carrington training camp in his Rolls-Royce before he was involved in the smash, The Sun reports.

Rashford was left shaken by the crash, though he is not thought to have sustained serious injuries.

No arrests were made and no ambulances were called.

Rashford said: "3 points on the road! I’m alright guys thanks for the messages."

A United spokesman added: "Marcus is fine and was not injured. It was an accidental collision as he left the training ground after returning from Burnley.

A source told the Sun: “The woman was on her way home from baby­sitting her grand-daughter. She’s a cautious, careful driver and even more so when it’s raining — which it was.

“The impact caused the airbags to go off. She was very, very shaken and confused. She’s not a football fan and didn’t have any idea who Marcus Rashford is.”

The back-left tyre and taillight of Rashford's car were badly damaged in the terrifying smash.

It came just hours after Manchester United beat Burnley 1-0 at Turf Moor.

The United forward played a full 90 minutes as his team broke a three-game losing streak thanks to a thunderous Bruno Fernandes volley.

The victory leaves United in eight place in the Premier League.

Ten Hag told BBC Sport after the win: “It was clear. Of course we needed that win. We had a tough run of games against good opponents. It wasn’t necessary to lose those games. Today was must-win.

“The team spirit and how they fight together [was impressive]. It was a team attacking with 11 and defending with 11. They supported each other. A lot has been against us, like injuries and decisions. Like tonight.”
