United supporters will be extremely pleased about Rashford's return and the fact that he was also able to find the back of the net twice. The friendly encounter against Blackburn Rovers has afforded him the chance to get his first unofficial minutes of the new campaign and to show he still has that sharpness in front of goal.

Rashford's return will not only be a huge boost for Manchester United, it is also timely ahead of a very busy set of fixtures. After the international break, the Red Devils will face Leicester City in the Premier League and Italian Serie A campaigners Atalanta in the Champions League. His direct play running at defences offers United a threat going forward - either centrally or on the wings and the team will be more dangerous on the offensive.
