Manchester United strengthened their hopes of finishing in the top four of the English Premier League after a determined 2-1 win over Liverpool at Old Trafford.
Surging ahead in the first half thanks to two Marcus Rashford goals, Jose Mourinho’s side switched gears to frustrated Liverpool’s attacking force, holding on to pick up a vital three points.
It was Rashford’s first Premier League start of 2018 and a huge chance to stake a claim for a spot in Mourinho’s starting eleven going forward.
He delivered with two excellent finishes from the left hand side, easing worries that the Red Devils would miss Anthony Martial for the visit of their great rivals.
Fans are absolutely overjoyed with his contribution and the fact he responded to Mourinho’s faith in him by producing a big performance when needed.
Can he now make that position his own in the closing stages of the season?

Big selection headache for Jose after that Rashford performance. Both him & Martial are brilliant on the left, Alexis great there too. Who plays Tuesday? We’ll have to wait & see.#MUFC https://t.co/rp9OHHFxuS

The competition between Rashford, Lingard and Martial is #MUFC major driving force this season.

Absolutely fantastic from Rashford. Always been a more consistent performer and a better option than Martial for me. #MUFC
