Manchester United Have a New Cristiano Ronaldo in Marcus Rashford

Manchester United Have a New Cristiano Ronaldo in Marcus Rashford

Rashford was handed a rare start against Liverpool on Saturday and he bagged a brace as Manchester United ran out 2-1 winners.

The 20-year-old England worldwide has been an integral part of Jose Mourinho's first team this season but has seen his playing time limited nevertheless.

In addition to being an important win for the team, it was a huge moment in the career of Marcus Rashford, who scored twice on his first league start since Boxing Day.

Lingard believes Rashford has the right mentality, the right set of people around him and hailed his progress.

Did Manchester United need to sign Alexis Sanchez?

"But once you are on the pitch you have got to make an impact and maybe next game you will be playing".

Mourinho was booed by some fans when he took off Rashford for Marouane Fellaini but he said that he was more upset with some supporters criticising young midfielder Scott McTominay when he sought to slow the game down and play the ball back. Things this manager wants are becoming more clear to me. The Portuguese tactician was often criticised for not giving chance to youth players but McTominay, Lingard and Rashford are all clear counterarguments to popular belief. "The more you do, the easier the results come on the pitch.", Rashford said after the Liverpool game.

Manchester United's Marcus Rashford scores their first goal, March 10, 2018.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are now preparing for their crunch Champions League clash against Sevilla in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

It was a disappointing afternoon for Jurgen Klopp's men as they really struggled in the first half before rallying after the break.

The dressing room joker helped to keep Rashford's spirits up during his first real setback by having a laugh with him and constantly reassuring him of his undoubted quality. Rashford got in behind and in a one-vs-one situation against Trent Alexander-Arnold when he channelled his Cristiano Ronaldo self for a chip on the ball and a shift of balance to his favoured right foot, before rifling the ball into the corner.

Before the two goals, after the two goals, I thought we were dominant.
