Manchester United enjoyed a thrilling league outing on Wednesday away at Vicarage road. But despite the 2-4 victory over Watford, Jose Mourinho was still unhappy with Marcus Rashford.

The young Englishman was benched by the United boss whilst Anthony Martial received the nod ahead of him. And Mourinho’s decision paid off, as the Frenchman secured his side’s third goal.

Martial’s walk off the pitch was followed by the introduction of Rashford, whose 25 minutes on the pitch proved that the Portuguese was right to drop him to the bench.

However, it wasn’t the England international’s mediocre outing that annoyed the former Chelsea boss, but a moment in stoppage time that got him infuriated.

Despite the two-goal advantage, the Portuguese manager was seen scowling at the young winger at the 93rd minute. Though no one exactly knows what left the Red Devils’ manager so angered, many have speculated that it was the 20-year-old’s lack of involvement in defensive work.

The 54-year-old definitely never loses his focus on the match, and seems to be set on not conceding despite being in possession of a healthy lead.

On the other hand, the talented forward has also been very clearly shown of his weaknesses, and would likely want to work on it.
