  • Assist: Ross Barkley. Barkley gives Rashford the ball on the left who beats one man then another dragging the ball back on the byline, steps inside the area and unleashes a tight-angled, fierce shot which the keeper can only get a fingertip to. Marcus Rashford8th of 11 goals, 7' (6:29)
  • Assist: Raheem Sterling. A one-two by Sterling and Kane sets up the former to whip a cross from deep in the box to Barkely who has a tap in. Ross Barkley5th of 6 goals, 20' (19:39)
  • Assist: Harry Kane. Kane floats a lovely cross from the right into the box. Both Sterling and Barkley are in queueing up to head it past the keeper. Barkley wins. No Bulgarian in sight. Ross Barkley6th of 6 goals, 32' (31.42)
  • Assist: Harry Kane. Almost a carbon-copy of the second goal except more of a break-away, a one-two with Kane and Trippier gives Kane time to cross from the right. This time it is Sterling who tucks away the tap in. Raheem Sterling11th of 13 goals, 45' +3 (48.47)
  • Assist: Harry Kane. Pickford scuffs a goal kick which luckily finds Kane in the centre circle. Henderson, then Sterling, make ground before Kane is allowed to run with the ball who slots Sterling in one-on-one with the keeper. He slides the ball past the keeper. Raheem Sterling12th of 13 goals, 69' (68:05)
  • Assist: Ben Chilwell. Chilwell, in an advanced position, does well holding off Galin Ivanov for Kane to pick up the ball and run at the defence. He beats one man easily and has a simple shot tucking the ball inside the near post. Harry Kane28th of 32 goals, 85' (84:12)
