Mourinho: Our only objective is to win the league

Marcus Rashford came off the bench to score a ninety second minute victor in Manchester United’s 1-0 victory over Hull City at the KCOM Stadium.

Rashford struck a 92nd-minute victor, having replaced Juan Mata 20 minutes earlier, as United broke Hull’s resolve to extend Mourinho’s winning start at United. The 18-year-old Rashford burst onto the scene in the second half of last season, earning a place in England’s European Championship squad, but has been displaced by Ibrahimovic under new coach Jose Mourinho.

Shaw has played a key role for United so far this season, with Jose Mourinho’s side winning their first three Premier League matches.

The 23-year-old spent the first half of last season on loan at Preston scoring two goals in 22 appearances before being recalled by Manchester United only to suffer a season-ending injury in the FA Cup win over Shrewsbury.

Wayne Rooney broke into laughter as he revealed that Marcus Rashford’s stoppage-time movement had passed him by.

“United now have a two-week break due to the global fixtures and Mourinho says whether Rashford starts the next game will depend on who returns fit”. We tried everything during the 90 minutes and it was very exciting to celebrate the victory at the end with the team-mates and the fans who were there supporting us.

Speaking on Sunday, he said: “I think, if he goes to the full squad, Sam [Allardyce, the manager] will put him on the bench”.

“But I think top players have to have more time on the pitch than on the bench”. It meant so much to all of us.

“I’m just so happy that we could get the three points, not just for us but for the fans”.

“Even a few of the lads have said it was back to the old days, when they used to smash and grab”.

Hull’s capture of Scotland goalkeeper David Marshall from Cardiff for a £5million fee is also expected to be confirmed on Tuesday. We need football players.

I tell the boys every day we have to go into every match to win.
