Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has developed further as a player than Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane had when they were the same age, according to England manager Gareth Southgate.

Some pundits have expressed concern that the 20-year-old, who has scored twice for his country in the last two internationals, is not starting in the Premier League with Romelu Lukaku United's regular target man.

Rashford scored twice for England in the worldwide break and Jamie Carragher advised the forward to leave United for the good of his career. Marcus Rashford is not Dominic Solanke, not Ruben Loftus-Cheek, not Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

Mourinho also hasn't been shying away from openly criticising his players, but Lukaku believes footballers have become too sensitive and should be able to deal with criticism.

Watford are up next for Man United on Saturday, who have a flawless record with four wins out of four and could rub salt in the wounds by condemning Mourinho's men to yet another defeat this weekend.

United's Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho has played the France worldwide for just 60 minutes in all competitions this season.

At about the same time on September 20, FEMA will also run a test of the Emergency Alert System on television and radio. Everyone will then receive this message in English: "THIS IS A TEST of the National Wireless Emergency Alert System ".

"People called me and asked me to fall at Wembley because they need news for me".

Mourinho gave a detailed explanation about Rashford's playing time under him ranging from matches, minutes and competitions during the two-year period.

"So I can imagine on Sunday I am going to be criticised for not playing Marcus but it is not my fault. So with me, in two seasons, he had 105 appearances, 5774 mins, 63.7 matches of 90 mins, including five finals". "Because most managers in the league, when they are not happy they try to find a way to seem happy", Lukaku told the BBC ahead of today's clash with Watford. "I have a direct relation with the players - not (just) Paul, the players - and he never told me he wants to leave". "That is why I am going so specific about these numbers".

"The ones that wake up in the morning and the first thing that comes into their mind is Jose Mourinho, Manchester United, I feel sorry for them because there are much more interesting things than us and football", he added.

Mourinho is keen to retain the services of the five players, despite only De Gea and Shaw having featured regularly in the opening month of the new season.
