Man Utd hold on to inflict first defeat on Watford

Rashford, who is suspended for Saturday's trip to Watford, scored twice for England during the global break prompting suggestions he should be played more regularly for his club.

"So I'm going to do something, not for you, but the United fans, and I think I hold myself to the United fans and so for them I am going to spend two mins with you".

For United, he was taken off after 60 and 45 minutes in their first two EPL matches against Leicester City (won 2-1) and Brighton (lost 3-2).

And I told the players at half-time that it could be a match to win four or five nil, or to be in real trouble.

Mourinho gave a detailed explanation about Rashford's playing time under him ranging from matches, minutes and competitions during the two-year period.

He has played three times this season, though he is yet to complete 90 minutes, though he has already made over 125 appearances for the club, scoring 32 goals. He's not Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

The problem for Rashford, and Southgate, is that he is not getting to play in his best position at United.

In their first game of the post-Harry era on Saturday, Watford slipped to a 2-1 defeat.

Rashford will definitely be missing when Mourinho's men travel to Watford for their match on Sunday morning (Singapore time), though, as he begins a three-match ban. "I'm very happy with the spirit, I'm very happy with something that represents for me the spirit of the team - which is a Lukaku sliding tackle after 50 metres running back to help the team".

But Democrats want access to more documents from Kavanaugh's past as a judge and as an official in the administration. Kavanaugh, like previous nominees, declined to answer hypothetical questions that might come before him as a justice.

"But it is not my fault, he's suspended, so probably you should remind them that he is suspended and can not play".

"Our fans have to be proud of us, we have to make an effort and I think the players have done that".

Manchester United are considering releasing Anthony Martial for loan in January.

José Mourinho has defended his use of Marcus Rashford, with Manchester United's manager reading from a prepared sheet of statistics regarding the forward's appearances since he took over in summer 2016.

"If I watch Mr Raiola [Pogba's agent Mino Raiola] on the screen saying the player wants to leave, and that he is organising a way for him to try to leave or so on, then I will believe [it]", Mourinho told United Kingdom newspapers.

"But for the Manchester United supporters, I think it is important they have the right idea of how things are in reality".

"Since I've been here, Marcus Rashford has been selected for every single match - he was never, not even for one day, out of selection because of my decision or because he was injured or, like in this case, because he is suspended".

Mourinho hailed the "very important" victory but said his side's performance level dipped in the second half. "But Marouane is giving us more than that - he's giving us that but he's also giving us quality and simplicty".
