Paul Scholes: Marcus Rashford was the shining light for Man United

Paul Scholes believes Manchester United youngster Marcus Rashford was the only shining light from the 3-1 defeat to Watford.

The Englishman took up a more of a central position in the second-half and made an instant impact, linking up with Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score the equaliser.

He has made brilliant performances off the bench for Mourinho this season and was rewarded with a spot in the starting XI.

Speaking about the game, Scholes insists Man United were poor in possession.

“The quality on the ball was as poor as you will see from a Manchester United team,” he said.

“That’s just the way it is at the minute. You’re not sure what you’re going to get.

“Rashford is the only shining light really and he didn’t have his best game. He looked a threat but in possession, United looked really, really poor.”

Rashford’s stock continues to rise at Man United and there is no doubting his main strength is his goalscoring ability.

He may have been wasted out wide today despite his impressive display, the moment he was moved into more of a central role, he made an instant impact and found the back of the net.

Mourinho has a decision to make on Rashford’s position at the club and his impressive performances have only made the choice harder.
