Rio Ferdinand defends Jose Mourinho’s handling of Man United striker

Mourinho has been the subject of criticism for stunting Rashford's progress in the Manchester United team over the past few seasons. United has won back-to-back domestic games and enters with momentum while the Swiss side has started the season 6-0-0 and lead the Super League by eight points.

On the back of his displays for the Three Lions, his manager made an impassioned defence of the number of minutes he has given the forward during his tenure.

Mourinho is hoping to make it three in a row when they kick off their Champions League campaign against Young Boys in Switzerland on Wednesday and revealed key alterations have been behind the turnaround in form.

Manchester United have been forced to change the way they play in order to battle back from a poor start to the season, according to manager Jose Mourinho. But if he has a game where he's not as effective then other guys will come in.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic was similarly influential on Rashford and the 20-year-old is spending around half an hour after every training session working with Lukaku, Metro.co.uk understands.

There have been suggestions from some quarters that Rashford should look to leave Old Trafford on loan in search of more regular playing time in his preferred central position.

The 8/11 (1.73) quote from bet365 for the men from Manchester to score more than once may prove popular, while the same firm go 13/8 (2.63) that there is more than one goal before half time.

"Maybe people think it is going to be easy, but we definitely don't".

On the question of where Rashford's best position is now, and where the Manchester-born forward will eventually settle on the field, Hargreaves - who himself played in a number of positions - thinks too much has been made of it.

"But I just want to remind you, in advance, that we can only start with 11 players, so when tomorrow you see the team, you could try to speak about the ones who are going to play and not about the ones who aren't".

Instead of training at Carrington the day before the game, the players will train at the stadium on Tuesday evening in a bid to get used to the artificial pitch.

Marouane Fellaini has been instrumental in the last two games for United.
