It was a throwback to the days of old as Manchester United scored a late, late goal to clinch all three points at Hull City. Here are 5 things we learned from Manchester United’s win over Hull City.
1) Rashford proves his worth
First things first. Marcus Rashford made his first Premier League appearance of the season. And he couldn’t have hoped for a better script.
United had been driving shot after shot towards the Tigers’ goal. But, most of them failed to clear the outfielders. The ones that did manage to invade Hull City players were either gobbled up by Jakupovic or entirely failed to test him.
But then Rashford stepped up. The Mancunian calmly slotted past Jakupovic and took off. This comes at a significant time for the youngster. Mourinho has stated unequivocally that Rashford is behind Zlatan in the pecking order, while English manager, Sam Allardyce has relegated him to the reserves.
At the same time Mourinho’s men should be given credit for keeping up the pressure and sticking to their gameplan. There is still a lot of ground to cover, but it doesn’t hurt to keep the 100% win record.
