Rashford's marked improvement in ruthlessness in front of goal made it abundantly clear he has regained the confidence he was devoid of in recent months and with his display against United's bitter rivals, he deserves his place back in Manchester United starting eleven.

United manager Jose Mourinho revealed Pogba was a doubt for the last-16 second-leg encounter against Sevilla and the club-record signing was absent from Monday morning's training session.

The style of head coach Vincenzo Montella is similar with Unai Emery, but the Italian doesn't make enough changes during or between games and shows a lack of understanding the opposition.

Marcus Rashford's two goals within half an hour at Old Trafford on Saturday helped Manchester Untied secure a crucial victory over Liverpool.

"I think this Pogba thing is just sort of rumbling on now", he said.

Forward Anthony Martial could return at Old Trafford after missing two matches.

Manchester United must match the intensity they played with against Liverpool if they want to beat Sevilla.

As Memphis Depay secured his move to Old Trafford from PSV Eindhoven in 2015, the then 21-year-old was dubbed "the next" Portugal global; only for lack of opportunity and low confidence to quickly bring that short-lasting theory to an end.

Man Utd boss Mourinho blasts de Boer over Rashford remarks
He plays for United many matches, he starts some comes from the bench for others. He's a player we trust. "He had a good match and not just by scoring goals".

Novak Djokovic ousted in Indian Wells
Federer returned to stadium court on Sunday afternoon and needed an hour to finish off his second round victory 6-3, 7-6 (8/6). Moreover, Djokovic was handed just his fifth defeat to a player outside the Top 100 of the ATP Rankings in the past decade.

They were, however, to end the weekend five points adrift of the Red Devils and down in fourth spot after being put to the sword by a deadly double from Marcus Rashford. "In football you are going to be up, you're going to be down". In training is where I'm doing most of my learning.

Rashford's been in the side recently, he's done well, particularly off the left-hand side.

"When you are younger than I am, and you are learning the game, I think you do need it".

The latter will also be unavailable for England over the worldwide break, with the Portuguese saying Gareth Southgate should only select Jones if he "wants to take him for the medical department because he's injured". "There are 11 players that start, it's just one of those things".

"Of course not. He's a player we trust".

"Mourinho, look how hard it is to win when you don't want to", Spanish sports daily Marca said in a withering critique of the Portuguese's set-up. He started, he had a good match and I'm not just speaking about scoring goals because, for me, the analysis of a performance is much more than analysing the number of goals or assists. I'm really happy too.

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.
