Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford beginning to understand what Jose Mourinho wants

We had these things in pretty much all moments, but we didn't score. We're all in it together. Sometimes you are in the team, sometimes you are not in the team.

"I like the fact he stands up for himself too - if someone kicks him, he can handle himself and he does not seem very bothered by it".

"One of the things Rashford does really well is carry the ball".

Bringing Rashford back into the starting line-up for this game was a shrewd move by Mourinho. It is the forward's first prolonged spell out of the team since making a blistering start to his career in 2016.

The 20-year-old striker, who joined Liverpool in the summer of 2017 after leaving Chelsea at the end of the 2016-17 season, featured in the Premier League game against United at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

The England global has been out of favour at the Theatre of Dreams but he rewarded Jose Mourinho's faith in him two quick-fire goals against the Reds. "It is just another experience".

However, as good as Lukaku's performance was, United fans seemed to be more impressed with the passion he showed after Rashford secured his first brace since his Premier League debut against Arsenal two seasons ago. The more you do that, the easier the results come on the pitch.

"I would love to see him play up front as part of a proper partnership because we got a glimpse of what could happen there with his movement off Lukaku for his first goal - but against Liverpool he did the job he was asked to do". "I am not upset at all with that reaction", he said. It is in training where I'm doing most of my learning.

It took nearly three months, 11 games, and a second half penalty save, but Cech finally got his milestone.

"Personally, taking the confidence from this game into the next games is important". Manchester United kept pushing with a simple gameplan where the rival was the weakest, scoring two quick goals and then shutting the game.

And, at the start of a week in which Mourinho is also looking to progress in the Champions League and FA Cup, the United manager believes he and opposite number Jurgen Klopp are at similar stages in terms of developing their clubs. "That a kid with 21 years old, making all the right decisions, and they want him to make the wrong decisions", added Mourinho.

"The fans they can do what they want".

The tempo of United's game quickened markedly when Rashford was introduced against Crystal Palace and, following his deadly display here, he will surely line out on Tuesday as United bid to reach the last eight of the Champions League.
