Mourinho happy with 'controlled' Manchester United performance vs Liverpool

Mourinho happy with 'controlled' Manchester United performance vs Liverpool

The two sides played out a goalless draw in the first leg of the last 16 clash at Old Trafford last month as Mourinho looks to try and steer his side into the quarter-finals of Europe's elite club competition.

Manchester United are poised to hand Jesse Lingard a new contract worth as much as £100,000 a week, according to reports in the British media. Rashford received a rare start from manager Mourinho as it was only the 14th Premier League start for the forward.

Lingard says he and Rashford accept an automatic start is never going to happen at a club the size of United. Whether it's when he rushes forward, tracks deep into his own half or stands up to players nearly double his age to defend his teammates, there is something rather curious about Marcus Rashford that makes him just like Cristiano Ronaldo. "I am upset with the reaction they had with Scott McTominay, a kid who was making all the right decisions and they want him to make the wrong decisions", he said.

"It's good you can be around him to have a laugh and reassure him that it's going to come good and that, if he gets a chance, he will perform, which he's done". You have to take it into the game and today [Saturday] it worked.

"When he made a decision to break the intensity of the game.that was a wonderful solution that some more experienced players wouldn't make and the fans reacted against the kid".

"He has got good people around him, and they always assure him he is in a good place".

They were United's only two shots on target in the entire match and Mourinho believes Rashford's brace - which came in front of England manager Gareth Southgate - will be a huge boost to his self-belief.

The 25-year-old added: "He can do that against any team, he has that level of confidence to do it so, if he can keep doing what he's doing, the sky's the limit".

Versatility is another trait that makes Rashford Cristiano Ronaldo's rightful heir at Old Trafford. Leave YOUR opinion in the comments box below!
