Marcus Rashford ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo Harry Kane at same age - Southgate

Jamie Carragher was speaking on Sky Sports after England's win over Switzerland on Tuesday

'Rashford is not Dominic Solanke, he's not Ruben Loftus-Cheek, he's not Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

"He is Marcus Rashford, a Manchester United player, with an incredible number of appearances and an incredible number of minutes played at the highest level in the best possible competitions".

United entered the worldwide break with a 2-0 win against Burnley but will face unbeaten Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday in another hard test for the Red Devils.

"I think I can expect that Sunday I'm going to be highly criticised for not playing him because some of the boys are really obsessed with me and some of them have a problem with some compulsive lies", added Mourinho.

"Jose thinks the world of Marcus", he said.

The forward is stuck behind Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez in the pecking order at the Theatre of Dreams but no outfield player has featured more under Mourinho than Rashford since his appointment in 2016.

Though this comes as a result of Chelsea's previous focus on immediate success rather than developing their own talent, Mourinho must also take some blame with the likes of Kevin De Bruyne and Mohamed Salah initially failing to make it in the Premier League at a young age while managed by the Portuguese. I feel sorry for them, there are more interesting things than Jose Mourinho'.

"If I listen to players from back in the day and now, a manager can not say what he wants to a player because you feel attacked", he added.

The space agency described the footage as "a stark and sobering" view of the storm, as it moved with wind speeds of 130 miles per hour.

Spurs keeper Lloris banned from driving
But of course we're not God, that we can judge people. "But I think everyone can make a mistake". Lloris has made 256 appearances with Tottenham since joining from the French club Lyon in 2012.

"It gets to the point when you ask if he will ever be an England regular or Manchester United's real centre-forward".

He then read off a prepared list of stats accentuating Rashford's minutes played.

One stat highlights just how precocious Rashford is: He has scored in his senior United debut (as a late call-up for a Europa League match in February 2016), his Premier League debut, his England debut, his Champions League debut and also his first Manchester derby.

"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".

Rashford will definitely be missing when Mourinho's men travel to Watford on Saturday, though, as he begins a three-match ban after being sent-off against Burnley before the worldwide break.

Shaw was carried off during England's defeat to Spain and missed the win over Switzerland at Leicester on Tuesday.

"He is only 20 years old and he probably needs a little more time, but I think this season is a big season for him".

"We know how exciting he is", Southgate said after the game against Switzerland.
