Manchester United have come under scrutiny in recent days after Jose Mourinho decided to park the bus against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday.
Mourinho’s side barely attacked and looked very happy to take a 0-0 draw against their arch-rivals. Hardly the confidence of a side that should be looking to win every competition they play in.
But just days after their stalemate against Liverpool, United travelled to Portugal to take on Benfica.
After winning their opening two matches in their relatively easy group, a third victory would have seen them put one foot in the competitions last-16.
Surely it would be more interesting that Saturday’s draw with Liverpool.
Well, not really.
They may have won 1-0 but it was far from convincing.But there was some positive that came out of the match in the form of Marcus Rashford.
But there was some positive that came out of the match in the form of Marcus Rashford.
The 19-year-old had to make do with a place on the bench against Liverpool but was rewarded with a start at the Stadium of Light.
And he marked it with a crazy free-kick strike after Benfica’s 18-year-old goalkeeper Mile Svilar had an absolute nightmare.
But it was a moment before that that caught our eye.
Rashford was running down the left and completely humiliated Douglas Pereira.
Watch: Rashford's skill
Take a look:
And this is how Twitter reacted:
And with that scrappy 1-0 win, everyone will forget about United's disappointing 0-0 draw with Liverpool last weekend.
Next up for United are fixtures against Huddersfield and Swansea and with Rashford in this kind of form, you'd expect him to be given more opportunities in the starting line-up.News Now - Sport News
