Manchester United 4-0 win against Fulham at Old Trafford was very impressive even if their opponents are rooted at the bottom of the table. Jose Mourinho will be certainly impressed by Marcus Rashford performance.
The English attacker netted a crazy goal late in the game after assisting Juan Mata and Romelu Lukaku goals. He had another wonderful day in office less than a week after assisting two goals to get a 2-2 draw against Southampton.
