Jose Mourinho reveals why Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial rarely start together

Jose Mourinho admits Manchester United are more open with Rashford and Martial starting

United finished no lower than third in each of the first 21 seasons of the Premier League, but since Ferguson's departure in 2013 they have failed to secure a top-three finish including a disappointing sixth-place under Mourinho last season.

Rashford, now 20, has seen his career accelerate from the night Louis van Gaal brought him into the starting line-up at short notice in the Europa League tie against Midtjylland back in February 2016.

"There's so many different incidents that can easily pass you by and you forget about".

The young striker had plenty of options when it came to choosing an inspiration, such has been the myriad attacking talent that has graced Old Trafford down the years. You watch, there'll be a game [when he is called upon to go in goal]. I think that [fear factor] is still there.

"You look at Rashford at the moment and he wants to extend himself to be as good as he can be, which is very, very good". I just think at the moment having Lukaku in the team and obviously Zlatan [Ibrahimovic] coming back as well, I think it's good.

Obviously, that window has closed, but Apple's offer to help unlock the device and retrieve data from iCloud may still hold good. The report notes that the investigators searching the shooter's vehicle afterward found his iPhone covered with blood stains.

That's what United has always been about, so it is important for us to try and get that feeling back to Old Trafford of winning. He's got great feet, scores goals and creates goals. I'm going to get the gloves one day!'

"He's had his ups and downs with the manager already but I think he just wants the arm around the shoulder - a bit of loving and you'll definitely get the best out of him".

Ibrahimovic's return to first team action has raised questions over which strike pairing Mourinho might use in the coming weeks.

From the beginning of the season, United fans have hoped to see Rashford and Martial playing either side of Lukaku, but Mourinho deployed both of them slightly to the left of the Belgian on Saturday, with Juan Mata shifted to the right.

Following a hard opening spell, during which Newcastle took the lead courtesy of Dwight Gayle's goal, United soon found their rhythm going forward and played with the kind of abandon and verve that had deserted their football over the last six weeks.
