Whenever I ask players who have been away with England who has looked the sharpest in training, the same name always crops up: Marcus Rashford.
Such a supremely talented young player simply has to be in this Manchester United team. Why had he gone nearly three months without starting in the Premier League?
We know that Jose Mourinho prefers experience. It made me chuckle when I heard him say recently that Rashford can learn from Alexis Sanchez. In as many words, Mourinho was saying that he would not be picking the 20-year-old.
It's surprising that the talented Marcus Rashford has not been in Manchester United's team.
There is also an argument that Rashford’s game time is being managed to prevent him from burning out.
But it is easy to blame Mourinho. Is Rashford giving his manager enough of a reason to select him?
With Sanchez and Anthony Martial providing fierce competition for that wide left position, he has to constantly show more in training to force his way into the team.
There have been times this season when he has disappointed. He has seemed too eager to prove what he can do and rushed chances.
When Rashford has an off day, Mourinho will look to his bench. That should no longer be the case after his match-winning heroics against Liverpool.
This was a statement from Rashford that he is here to stay. His first goal was a different class, chopping back with his left foot and bending the ball into the corner.
There have been times this season when the youngster has disappointed and been too keen.
Trent Alexander- Arnold is lightning quick but by the time Rashford had finished with him he was so far out of the stadium he had to pay to get back in!
There is nothing quite like scoring in this fixture. I did so for Liverpool in a 2-0 win in 1995 and it effectively gave me a free pass for 10 games.
Rashford needs to use this opportunity to nail down his place. He should be aiming to score six or seven goals before the end of the season.
He will be fresh and raring to go for the World Cup. My message to him is this: go to Russia with the mentality that you can destroy anybody.
Manchester United's victory must have been bittersweet for Paul Pogba, as United showed they could win a big game without him.
With Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic, there was a more balanced look to their midfield.
When Pogba returns to fitness, I can only see him making the bench. I have some sympathy for him. He will feel like he has been hung out to dry by his manager.
Despite sharing a joke in the tunnel after Saturday’s win, it seems Mourinho and Pogba have lost trust in one another.
