"He's been wonderful and he's come tremendously far", the 24-year-old said.

Mourinho revealed after the game that Rashford tends to hang around training sessions long after his teammates.

The Red Devils travelled to Spain on Thursday for their Europa League semi-final first leg, beating Celta Vigo 1-0 at the Balaidos to put one foot into the final.

And after important goals against Chelsea and Anderlecht last month, Lingard insists Rashford is proving he can shoulder the responsibility.

"It's very normal to see teams and players reaching crucial matches and lose identity and not be mentally strong enough to cope with the pressure of the moment".

"We will have to go and score a goal as we did other times", he told beIN Sports.

"He's still growing. He's going to fill out even more".

Rashford was criticised following the 1-1 draw with Swansea on Sunday after being accused of diving to win a penalty in the first half.

"What happened in the first leg showed us how to play back".

The pair have endured a fraught relationship since the Portuguese entered English football as Chelsea manager in 2004, but on Thursday Wenger said: "I am open always in life to everything, for peace".

Sergio Romero takes over from David de Gea in goal once more, and Antonio Valencia is back in the starting XI following his lengthy stint as substitute against the Swans.

Mourinho's prime focus is now winning the Europa League for Champions League qualification and, with that in mind, he will rest players at Arsenal.

The visitors had the best chances in the early exchanges, though the Galicians made the first clear-cut opening for the unmarked Daniel Wass who headed wide from close range. "We have got the belief and the manager believes in us to get there".

"Martial was fresh and he had to give us these last 10-15 minutes where we thought we still could score". "We are going to try (to win). we are not going to Arsenal to say "beat us", or "beat us 5 or 6-0".
