Rashford's double - on his first Premier League start since Boxing Day - proved decisive, as Liverpool couldn't add to the Bailly own goal as they slipped to a first defeat in eight games in all competitions.

Manchester United are coming off from a hugely successful weekend in the Premier League which saw them record a morale-boosting 2-0 win over their biggest rivals Liverpool. Such a statistical insight sheds a different light on the apparent lack of opportunity and chance Rashford is being given by Jose Mourinho. It is just the all-round game is starting to become more clear.

"But, once you're on the pitch, you've got to make an impact and maybe next game you'll be playing".

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

Two goals in 10 minutes gave the home side a 2-0 lead after 24 minutes and Juan Mata nearly added a third before half-time but the Kops came hard in the second half and dominated possession but fell short despite an own goal from Eric Bailly.

"Right now, I'm probably not learning the most on the pitch", said the former academy graduate, who hopes to play a key role for England at the World Cup in Russia."In training is where I'm doing most of my learning".

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