Rashford to fight for his place at Manchester United this season

  • Rashford is likely to find himself playing second fiddle to Romelu Lukaku at Manchester United

"He [Rashford] has still played a lot of football, although maybe not the continuous starts and I'm really pleased for him that he leaves England full of confidence".

With Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez seen as United's main attacking options, there have been some suggestions Rashford is not getting a fair chance at Old Trafford.

Mourinho's side will be looking to end Watford's flawless start in the new campaign in a Premier League match set for Vicarage Road.

He has only played a total of 122 Premier League minutes for Manchester United, picking up a needless red card in the 2-0 victory over Burnley. "Performances with England, of course I'm happy, he played well, he competed well, he scored and especially in a period where he comes with some sadness after his suspension it was very good that he did that".

"It's not my business to interfere with club managers, they have a hard job to do and they have big squads at the top six, huge competition for places, so Jose thinks the world of Marcus", Southgate said.

"He is not Ruben Loftus-Cheek, he is not Dominic Calvert-Lewin".

He has played in three of four Premier League matches for his side this season, but has yet to find the net or make an assist as the Old Trafford side have kicked off with two wins and two defeats.


With his pace, movement and fearlessness, Rashford can be a nightmare for opponents when he plays on the shoulder of the last defender. I feel sorry for them, there are more interesting things than Jose Mourinho'.

"Marcus Rashford is not Dominic Solanke", said Mourinho.

One stat highlights just how precocious Rashford is: He has scored in his senior United debut (as a late call-up for a Europa League match in February 2016), his Premier League debut, his England debut, his Champions League debut and also his first Manchester derby.

"I can imagine on Sunday I am going to be criticised for not playing Marcus, but it is not my fault, he's suspended, so probably you should remind them that he is suspended and cannot play".

That came after Jamie Carragher suggested the 20-year-old should seek a move elsewhere, prompting another astonishing rebuke by Mourinho, who claimed pundits are "obsessed" with him. "Contrary to some news, to some opinions by the protocol point of view and according to our doctor, he will be free to play".

"So we have got to give Marcus time to develop".
