Marcus Rashford must start – Manchester Derby Preview

Manchester United will battle Manchester City at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon. Fir the first time in a few years, excitement for the Manchester Derby is high and that has everything to do with Jose Mourinho, Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba, which has made United a lot stronger since last season. One other player is making the headlines – Marcus Rashford. Rashford made his rise to the first team last season, scoring a brace on his UEFA Europa League debut, a brace on his Premier League debut and helping himself to eight goals last season, playing a bit part in United’s final few months of the season.

Rashford made his debut for England, scoring on his debut there too, then after a poor England performance with Rashford the only bright spark in the defeat to Iceland, he was dropped by new England manager Sam Allardyce and picked for England U21’s for their U21 European Championships qualifier against Norway, where Rashford scored a hat-trick on his debut. Debuts are something Rashford has shone in, including grabbing the winner in his debut Manchester derby last season. Rashford may not start against City, but should be used from the bench in the latter stages of the match, which is where he could do some real damage to some tired legs.
