A descriptive intro, stuffed with observations, or perhaps an attention-grabbing quote from a high-profile source, but then I realised the only way was to get straight to the point with a myth-busting statistic, so here goes...
'What he was saying was not good for Marcus Rashford to have a coach like me because the most important thing for me is to win.
After the academy product's performance vs Liverpool it will surely be easier for the Portuguese manager to include his player in more matches. I said that before the Liverpool match when many of you were maybe not expecting him to start.
My ears pricked up at that line because I was convinced the boss had sold himself short. Marcus is no.1 and holds a clear lead over his team-mates.
Rashford is Manchester-born, supports United and Reds fans see him as one of their own, another continuation of the club's proud tradition of giving young players a chance.
Rashford is set to feature in England's squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation and might be granted a more prominent role than expected as Gareth Southgate waits to find out the severity of the ankle injury Harry Kane suffered during Tottenham's 4-1 win over Bournemouth on Sunday.

Several police officers who attended to them also became ill; one remains hospitalized, and is in a serious but stable condition. Nerve agents are highly toxic chemicals that resist the functioning of the nervous system and can be fatal.
After all the discussion of whether Rashford is fading away under Mourinho at Man United, the Special One threw him a start against Liverpool and he kindly paid him back with a brilliant brace to win the staunch rivalry. Not bad that, is it?
"Mourinho will point to the fact that United are rebuilding but, in terms of the way they play, you can not say that any real progress has been made". No, of course not.
The two goals hero in last Saturday's EPL crunch encounter said this while presenting the award to his mom: "Thank you for all you do".
"I have a lot of respect for Mourinho as a trainer". "In football you are going to be up, you're going to be down. sometimes you are in the team, sometimes you are not in the team". He has won trophies, is tactically very strong, knows how to disrupt the game of every opponent.
