Frank Lampard's penalty helped Chelsea to see off Benfica at Stamford Bridge

Marcus Rashford is confident his development will not suffer from a lack of game time after scoring twice in a 2-1 victory against Liverpool on his return to the Manchester United starting line-up.

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford insists that he doesn't expect Jose Mourinho to explain his prolonged absence from the squad.

Liverpool need to become "more streetwise", says John Aldridge, with Mohamed Salah and Jurgen Klopp's ball-playing side "too honest for their own good".

"Where he was saying it is not good for Marcus Rashford to have a coach like me because the most important thing for me is to win".

"If he was coached by Frank he would be coached how to lose because he lost every game". "Right now, I'm probably not learning the most on the pitch", said the former academy graduate, who hopes to play a key role for England at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"Does he play every match from the start?"

"Probably you are not expecting my answer - I'm happy with the decision", Mourinho told United Kingdom newspapers.

The £89 million French midfielder missed the clash with Liverpool through injury, but Mourinho confirmed he returned to training on Monday.

United stifled Liverpool's exhilarating attack early on at Old Trafford and raced into a two-goal lead with 24 minutes on the clock after a double from Rashford.

"But in the moment I can not, and I don't want to, think about anything else".

"It's a pity that the manager is Mourinho because normally, he's an English player".

The Portuguese added: "I try to give the best to the kids, education".

Oh dear. Mourinho was never going to take those comments lightly and considering De Boer only managed four games before he was sacked - with no points or no goals - he brought a rubber hammer to a gunfight.

Three-time European champions, United have made the Champions League quarter-finals just once in the past seven years.

"I think we are not one of the best teams in the competition, but I think when a team arrives in the last eight anything can happen". Sometimes you are in the team, sometimes you are not in the team.
