Rashford's future, however, looks certain as the manager believes he "doesn't need anything" to prove himself. "I play [Sergio] Romero, I play Daley Blind, I play [Eric] Bailly, I play Rashford, I play Martial, I play [Juan] Mata, but I have every player apart from [Marouane] Fellaini and [Romelu] Lukaku available and I don't go to the young players".

"Criticising Manchester United has been all too easy this season", Crouch wrote.
