Manchester United fans pleased with Romelu Lukaku's performance vs Liverpool

After the game it was revealed that United are nearly unbeatable at Old Trafford in the league when they take the lead in the first half.

At least West Ham's struggles provided some perspective for Liverpool, who will have been understandably disappointed by defeat to Jose Mourinho's Manchester United.

"It's a big club with big players, it's going to be tough to start every game". You have to take it into the game and [on Saturday] it worked.

Rashford has played less since the turn of the year than before, with his role becoming more that of a substitute than a starter, but his double against Liverpool will change that.

Mourinho said Rashford's inclusion, for his first start of the calendar year, reflected some impressive form in training as well as the absence through injury of his other left-sided attacking option Anthony Martial.

Manchester United are poised to hand Jesse Lingard a new contract worth as much as £100,000 a week, according to reports in the British media. "The more you do, the easier the results come on the pitch.", Rashford said after the Liverpool game.

From the first moment he was introduced into the Manchester United first-team fold, Marcus Rashford has displayed a sensational level of courage, confidence and nerve.

Peculiarly, Cristiano Ronaldo, while he was enjoying his spell under Sir Alex Ferguson in Manchester, happened to have scored a goal nearly identical to Rashford's, way back in 2007.

For those Rashford doubters...

"He's doing well, he's come in, he's got the right mentality and shown the manager what he can do".

The Portuguese produced his "Ronaldo Chop" prior to striking an impeccable shot into the bottom corner, while he was up against Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League.

Versatility is another trait that makes Rashford Cristiano Ronaldo's rightful heir at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho's notorious reputation stands as no obstacle for the youngster on his way to full prominence and it's only a matter of time before the forward has got his first-team place at Old Trafford locked.
