Rashford opened the scoring as early as the sixth minutes when the ball deflected off Sanchez to his path, he made no mistake as he beat Gazanigga with a low drive.

Dele Alli equalised with a brilliant goal just before half time but Rashford had the last laugh when he converted from the penalty spot to give Manchester United the lead and ultimately the maximum points.

Dele Alli continued his impressive form since Mourinho took over scoring his fourth goal in four matches.
