WHAT HAPPENED? The two young forwards showed exactly why so much fuss has been made about them when they came off the bench on Thursday evening. Rashford was involved in all three Manchester United goals, scoring twice and putting on an assist for Martial, a teammate with whom he shares a great relationship.

WHAT HE SAID: "He's a massive player he has been for a long time, when he's happy and at it, he's an unbelievable player," he told BT Sport after the game. "I've always enjoyed playing with him, it was nice to link up with him today, we'll be looking to do that more and more.

"We've both been injured, him a little longer than me, so it's nice to get minutes and for the second game in a row he's scored."
