"I'm not sure when I am going to play. He was never ever out of a selection, so he knows and that's the most important thing".

Mourinho has been regularly criticised for his management of the Englishman, who has not started a game for Manchester United this season, with some pundits suggesting he should look to move elsewhere to help his development.

He said in his press conference: "In the season 16/17, Marcus Rashford played 32 Premier League matches, eleven Europa League matches, including the final, three FA Cup matches, six League Cup matches, including the final, and the Community Shield".

While much can be said about the likes of Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial on a spectrum of life at Old Trafford, the limbo role of Marcus Rashford also begs attention. I think if we played the second half in the way we played the last bit of the first we would be in this moment with a completely different result, and without the last 10 minutes.

Defeat at Watford - who have won all four of their games - would leave United nine points off the lead and their title ambitions in tatters midway through September. "Media is very important and is very important Manchester United supporters know the truth, that's why I'm going so specific about these numbers". That's obvious, human, that's natural, not ethical but I accept. I have no direct relation with the people that write or the people that listen.

"But six goals and defensive mistakes, and then we go to two matches away - hard matches, different stadiums, Burnley, Watford - and I felt that my central defenders they needed, especially in this moment of a bit of instability, they needed somebody to support and to give them the first wall; physicality. He makes me laugh, he makes the players laugh, he's a real family guy", he continued.

"I$3 t is not my fault, he's suspended, so probably you should remind them that he is suspended and can not play". "When he's mad at me I know he is mad at me, and I try to do what he wants so he is happy again".

Mourinho has had strained relationships with some of his players at the club since taking charge in 2016, most notably with record signing Paul Pogba, but Belgian Lukaku said he preferred the manager to be honest.

The Red Devils appear back on track following successive away wins, and boss Jose Mourinho was delighted.

This season, he has started one game for United this season - the Premier League opener against Leicester, when he only played up front because Lukaku wasn't deemed ready to start after returning late to preseason training following the World Cup.
