Manchester United ended a run of four Premier League games without a win by beating Fulham 4-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The Red Devils were excellent in the first half and went into the interval 3-0 up thanks to goals from Ashley Young, Juan Mata and Romelu Lukaku - the latter's first home goal of the season.

An Aboubakar Kamara penalty got Fulham on the scoresheet but Marcus Rashford ensured United recorded their biggest win of the campaign with a lethal 82nd-minute strike.

The youngster also provided assists for each of Man Utd's opening two goals and was eventually rewarded in the form of a goal for superb efforts in recent matches. 

Following Rashford's latest performance, football supporters on Twitter brought up a great point about his form which involves his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho.

Rashford's recent form

Prior to Man United 4-1 Fulham, Rashford hadn't scored a goal since his late winner away to Bournemouth back on November 3.

However, he created both of United's goals in the 2-2 draw at Southampton and has really impressed both fans and Mourinho with his selfless work-rate for the team of late.

Rashford has stood out in his last three appearances, and immediately before that was the 1-0 victory over Young Boys in the Champions League.

Marouane Fellaini rolled home a 91st-minute winner but Mourinho grabbed the headlines for shaking his head seconds after Rashford missed an early one-on-one chance.

The "Special One" was criticised by several big names for his reaction, from Gary Lineker to United legends Rio Ferdinand and Paul Scholes.

Fans point out Rashford's displays since Mourinho reaction

Critics claimed that Mourinho's head-shake would kill Rashford's confidence, however fans have pointed out that the 21-year-old's been on fire ever since.

The Englishman has now registered a goal and four assists in his last three Premier League outings (all as a starter) whilst playing in different positions and improving his all-round game.

Check out some of the best tweets below:

Whether or not Rashford took a lot of notice to Mourinho's negative Young Boys reaction, it certainly hasn't harmed his displays - in fact, he seems even more determined.

With Anthony Martial not fit enough to feature against Fulham, Rashford starred from the left-wing but United's number ten can also play on the right and through the middle.

He'll look to keep his good form going as United, now sixth, desperately try to close the gap to the top four, beginning with next weekend's trip to league leaders Liverpool.
