Ex- Manchester United star, Owen Hargreaves, has claimed that Marcus Rashford wasn’t happy he had to come on as a substitute during the 3-0 win over Tottenham on Saturday.

The Englishman has been in great form, scoring two upon his return from injury, before the 5-0 loss to Liverpool.

Against Liverpool, Rashford made little impact, despite starting alongside Cristiano Ronaldo, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer deemed it best to try something different when we met Spurs— especially with his future hanging in the balance.

The coach opted for a 5-3-2 formation, with a front two of Edinson Cavani and Ronaldo, which was rewarded handsomely with both players scoring one each.

Rashford came on in the second half to also score a goal for us, but Hargreaves is adamant his demeanour didn’t show he was happy he didn’t start the game.

“I think you could see that in his celebration, he was fuming,” Hargreaves told Premier League Productions.

“But when two legends of the game are playing ahead of you it’s hard to complain in a sense.

“He’s never going to drop Ronaldo, he needed somebody else in there and Cavani was fabulous last season. He probably deserved to start sooner.

“Having Rashford and Greenwood to come off the bench, as much as it will hurt them, maybe right now for the balance of the team, they looked good today and Rashford will get goals coming off the bench, definitely.”
