“That’s what he did today and he was rewarded for it.

“In top football, you have to suffer and sacrifice to get the right result and win something.”

Rashford spoke about his knock after the game, and he admitted that he had to “push through” the pain.

He said: “It was just a little knock and in games like this you have to try and push through and thankfully I did that and scored the goal at the end to win the game.


“That’s what we set out to do. That’s always the aim in every game but is a little bit special.

“Either way we are pleased to get the three points and keep winning at Old Trafford.”
