Jesse Lingard in line for Manchester United pay rise

Marcus Rashford made the difference in Man Utd's win over Liverpool

After the game it was revealed that United are nearly unbeatable at Old Trafford in the league when they take the lead in the first half.

United face key games this week against Sevilla in the Champions League and Brighton in the FA Cup. Such a statistical insight sheds a different light on the apparent lack of opportunity and chance Rashford is being given by Jose Mourinho.

This will, however, inevitably draw comparisons to previous superstars at the club; one of the most well-known of course being Cristiano Ronaldo, who an eagle-eyed supporter has noticed scored a goal just like the England international's first strike on Saturday back when he was at Old Trafford. You have to take it into the game and [on Saturday] it worked.

Moreover, back in 2016, United legend Paul Scholes had also stated: "You've not seen any yet, but Rashford hits free kicks in a dipping fashion, nearly the way Cristiano Ronaldo does". Should Marcus Rashford start against Sevilla?

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard has revealed how Marcus Rashford has handled being out of the team this season. However, the 20-year-old's form could see him move ahead of Sanchez in the pecking order. I think, in the first half, we were very strong, very aggressive with a great intention to go and to hurt and, if possible, to score.

Peculiarly, Cristiano Ronaldo, while he was enjoying his spell under Sir Alex Ferguson in Manchester, happened to have scored a goal nearly identical to Rashford's, way back in 2007.

The first goal against Liverpool was just another proof of this claim.

"He's doing well, he's come in, he's got the right mentality and shown the manager what he can do".

What do YOU make of how Lingard has helped Rashford?

The Englishman is brilliantly skilled to adapt to any kind of situation or position, and to make the best of it - which his second goal is there to attest to.

"He's fine. He's happy that the team is getting results", Mourinho stated.
