Manchester United bounced back from defeat to Liverpool in spectacular fashion as they brushed aside Tottenham Hotspurs 3-0.
And the result was the final nail in the coffin for Nuno Espirito Santo, who was dismissed from his role on Monday morning.
However, Rashford didn’t feature in the clash until the 71st minute, when he came off the bench to score United’s third of the game.

But Rashford responded to the claim on Twitter: “Fuming at the manager??! We won the game that celebration was pure relief! It’s been a hard week…”
