Manchester United’s 2-1 victory over Liverpool could mark the moment where Marcus Rashford proved his worth to manager Jose Mourinho.
The striker scored both of United’s goals in their victory over the Merseyside club as the Red Devils tightened their grip on second spot in the Premier League.
And it seems the Portuguese is showing more faith in the 20-year-old, giving Rashford a place in the starting XI in United’s crucial Champions League last-16 second leg game against Sevilla.
The perception amongst many is that Rashford has not been given enough opportunities by Mourinho, but this incredible stat suggests otherwise.
No United player has played in more matches under Mourinho than Rashford (94). David De Gea has the second highest appearances under Mourinho (82).
This surprising stat certainly busts the myth surrounding Rashford, who will be eager to make a mark for the second game in quick succession against United’s Spanish opponents.
