England forward Rashford's 41st goal for the club came six days after he scored the victor against Kane's Tottenham at Wembley, and he now has seven goals in his past 10 appearances in all competitions.
Brighton has caused Manchester United a lot of troubles over the past twelve months as they recorded two victories against Man United in the premier league both at Amex stadium, most recently an impressive 3-2 against Man United earlier this season.
Rashford is still well behind the league's top scorers, scoring only 50% of league-leader Mohamed Salah's goals - though he would not be classed as a striker.
"We don't speak weekly", said Solskjaer. Harry Kane is injured so maybe that gives [Rashford] a better chance to be the best one at the moment. "He is only 21 but the maturity he is showing at times is more than 21 and his work rate". He finishes. He tries to shoot.
"So at the moment I think he's playing the best football in his career".
United's win was their seventh in a row in all competitions, as Solskjaer became the first manager in the club's history to win his first six league matches in charge.
The 21-year-old scored his seventh goal in his last 10 games as Manchester United beat Brighton 2-1 to maintain Solskjaer's ideal start as Old Trafford boss.
"It's not a bad person to learn off, is it?" said Young of the former United striker who now sits in the Old Trafford dugout. The only thing the manager told us was that we could improve the situation ourselves. "Defensively, we need to find our shape better".
"We can be even more clinical", the captain said. This has helped them get within inches from fifth place on the Premier League table.
United are now just three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and Matic is determined to overtake his former club and Arsenal in the Premier League standings.
'It's that they can just switch on and off like a tap, it doesn't fill me with confidence that they can take Manchester United back to the title but what they are doing at least is performing to their capabilities'.
"The players have to be proud of the form and momentum they are building".
Brighton boss Chris Hughton said: "Certainly I wasn't disappointed with the overall performance".
