Man Utd midfielder Matic: Is Mourinho upset with the red card...?

Gareth Southgate is not fretting about Marcus Rashford's lack of game time at Manchester United because he knows Jose Mourinho "thinks the world" of the striker. If you divide that by 90, it gives 29.7 matches. Since I was here, he was never one day out of selection because of my decision, only if he was injured or suspended.

Explaining his show of passion, Mourinho said: 'Because we trained the corner during the week, the best thing that can happen to coaches is you train and you see it happen in the match.

"The most important thing for me is that we made a very big effort again".

"The problem we are faced with is do we pick lesser players who are up to speed or do we pick what we believe are the best players and accept that for some of the younger ones in particular they might have not had as much game time?"

"So the people who are speaking about these minutes, I think they are a bit confused". He had 53 appearances but if you want the minutes of play, he played 3,068 [minutes] and if you want to divide that by 90 minutes, he played 34.2 matches of 90 minutes in 16-17. I don't know if they are in crisis. "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.

BBC Sport's Simon Stone has analysed Rashford's playing time under Mourinho, including his four appearances this season, which the manager omitted from his total (5,744).

But Shaw appeared to suffer another serious injury just minutes into second half of the 2-1 defeat to Spain as his head clattered into Dani Carvajal before bouncing off the turf.

Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure was linked with a move to United last season but signed a new contract until 2023 in the summer, and he said: 'I was always focused on Watford.

"I am very happy with the points, I am very happy with the spirit". He played well, he competed well, he scored and especially in a period where he comes with some sadness after his suspension.

This second part is also linked to the part about Marcus Rashford.

There have been suggestions that the striker will need to leave Manchester United and get away from Mourinho in order to play more football and develop further.

The Sky Sports pundit said that Rashford will do well at a club like Everton where he will play every week: "Everton is a club where someone like a Rashford knows he can play every week".

Rashford scored for England in his last two internationals but hasn't started for United on a regular basis in the presence of Romelu Lukaku.
