Manchester United Have a New Cristiano Ronaldo in Marcus Rashford

Manchester United Have a New Cristiano Ronaldo in Marcus Rashford

Lingard and Rashford, who both graduated from Man Utd's academy system, are very good mates and are seen together more often than not around the club's AON Training Complex.

The much criticized Red Devils hit the stage at Old Trafford against the in-form Liverpool in style thanks to a brace from young forward Marcus Rashford who once again displayed his vast talent and a big-match character despite enduring a hard season under Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho said Rashford's inclusion, for his first start of the calendar year, reflected some impressive form in training as well as the absence through injury of his other left-sided attacking option Anthony Martial.

And while Scot McTominay and Jesse Lingard offer a particular set of skills that perhaps fit into Jose Mourinho's somewhat rigid style more adequately, Marcus Rashford is proving to be the WOW element and the dazzling factor Manchester United have not had in a long time.

Peculiarly, Cristiano Ronaldo, while he was enjoying his spell under Sir Alex Ferguson in Manchester, happened to have scored a goal nearly identical to Rashford's, way back in 2007. "I am upset with the reaction they had with Scott McTominay, a kid who was making all the right decisions and they want him to make the wrong decisions", he said.

The Amazon Echo interactive speakers and visual display models previously only worked with one another to make and accept calls. So from now on, you can keep in touch with basically anyone who has the Alexa app installed on their device.

"The good thing was the first chance he had, he got it, he scored because I think in the last two months that was not happening with him", Mourinho said of Rashford. You have to take it into the game and today [Saturday] it worked.

The 24-year-old striker started the game and played for 70 minutes, as Jose Mourinho's side won 2-1. He's got good people around him.

They were United's only two shots on target in the entire match and Mourinho believes Rashford's brace - which came in front of England manager Gareth Southgate - will be a huge boost to his self-belief.

"Against any team he can do that, he has that level of confidence to do it, so if he can keep improving, keep doing what he is doing, the sky is the limit for him". The more you do, the easier the results come on the pitch.
