Rashford to fight for his place at Manchester United this season

Rashford scored in both of England's matches in September, and the 20-year-old was compared favourably to 2018 World Cup Golden Boot victor Kane and five-time Ballon d'Or holder Ronaldo by his global boss. Because of this, it's prompted some debate around how much playing time the 20-year-old is / should be getting at Manchester United.

"In 2017-18, he played 35 matches in the Premier League, eight in the Champions League, five in the FA Cup, including the final, three LC matches and the European Super Cup".

"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".

Since the start of the 2016-17 season, 20-year-old Rashford has played 5,866 minutes in all competitions.

"Marcus Rashford is not (Liverpool forward) Dominic Solanke, he's not (Chelsea midfielder) Ruben Loftus-Cheek, he's not (Everton striker) Dominic Calvert-Lewin".

'Some of them have a problem with some compulsive lies, so I can expect some of them will wake up on Sunday... and always the thing that comes to their mind is Jose Mourinho.

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

He then took names of certain youngsters of England from other EPL teams and highlighted Marcus is playing way more than them.

But the most impressive result has been their most recent one - a comeback victory against a top-four side in Tottenham Hotspur, which is a testament to the thread of continuity at the club and a manager who has been able to play to their strengths and maximize their chances of winning.

Their dominance in the air is well augmented by Holebas' clever deliveries into unsafe areas and given United's propensity to concede goals off individual mistakes - in set plays, his role will be crucial come Saturday to make it 5 in a row for Watford football club.

"But the media is very important and it is very important Manchester United supporters know the truth, that's why I'm going so specific about these numbers".

When asked is he felt Rashford was a "special talent" after Tuesday's win over Switzerland, southgate replied: "Yes he is".

Mourinho only plays one up front so Rashford isn't going to be paired with Lukaku.

"We know how exciting he is", Southgate said after the game against Switzerland.
