Do you think Rashford as the ability to reach Ronaldo's level?
Mourinho's side will be looking to end Watford's flawless start in the new campaign in a Premier League match set for Vicarage Road. He had 53 appearances but if you want to take to the minutes of play, he played 3068 and if you want to divide that by 90 minute matches, he played 34.2 matches of 90 minute matches in 2016-17.
"So with me, in two seasons, he had 105 appearances, 5,774 mins, 63.7 matches of 90 minutes, including five finals, so the people that are speaking about these minutes, I think they are a bit confused".
"Marcus Rashford is not Dominic Solanke".
Southgate is confident that Rashford's spell away with England will have raised his morale, as he also netted in the 2-1 Nations League defeat against Spain on Saturday.
Tongue in cheek, Mourinho said he is still expecting criticism when the forward was not in the team against Watford. "José [Mourinho] thinks the world of Marcus - he's a huge admirer of him - but he has his job to do".
I'm a United fan but this is ridiculous, stop comparing young players with potential, to All time Greats.
Exercise: The youngster will have benefited from his playing time with England.
Romelu Lukaku has been United's undisputed first-choice striker since arriving in a £75 million deal from Everton in the summer of 2017, leaving Rashford to get the majority of his first-team minutes from the substitutes' bench or starting on the wing. Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, another starter against Swtizerland, kept his place in the England squad despite not starting any of the Blues' opening four league games this season.
Thompson added: "He has to analyse his game time this year but when you look at a manager to player relationship, I don't think there is total trust from the manager of whether he's a centre-forward, a left-sided player or a right-sided one".
"I understand the difficulties that club managers have". "We are hoping that now we have given them some minutes they will go back to their club better prepared for when they get their opportunity and it gives them a better chance of staying in the team".
Gareth Southgate saying Rashford can be England's version of Ronaldo because of his goalscoring rate being way ahead of someone of his age.
"Since I was here, he was never one day out of selection because of my decision, only if he was injured or suspended".
