Jose Mourinho brings statistics to press conference to silence Marcus Rashford claims

England striker Harry Kane came on as a second-half substitute against Switzerland

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

"He had 53 appearances, but if you want to take to the minutes of play, he played 3,068, and if you want to divide that by 90-minute matches, he played 34.2 matches of 90-minute matches in 2016-17".

Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho gave a two-and-a-half-minute response when asked about Marcus Rashford's form for England after scoring two goals in two games in the global break.

Mourinho revealed the club's doctor has confirmed Shaw's availability from a medical perspective, but added he has not decided whether he will deploy the left-back against Watford on Saturday.

Some of them, they have a problem with some compulsive lies, so I can expect that Sunday some of them they will wake up in the morning and as always the first thing they think is José Mourinho.

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. "When he's mad at me I know he is mad at me, and I try to do what he wants so he is happy again".

The youngster bagged two goals for England during the global break, leading to pundits questioning his lack of game time at Old Trafford.

Justice and Homeland Security would have 45 days to make a determination and notify the president to trigger the sanctions. Coats said intelligence agencies were working around the clock to protect the midterm elections.

With Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez seen as United's main attacking options, there have been some suggestions Rashford is not getting a fair chance at Old Trafford.

"But for the Manchester United supporters, I think it is important they have the right idea of how things are in reality". "He was never, ever out for selection, so he knows, and that's the most important thing". "We still have a training session".

His side's defeats to Tottenham and Brighton means that this United's poorest start in the league in over two decades.

Mourinho also revealed that Ander Herrera could be set to miss the visit to Vicarage Road after suffering an ankle injury in training while Marouane Fellaini is struggling with a back problem that he suffered while away with Belgium during the global break.

"The reason I score more and more goals, season after season, is I know my mistakes from the past, I know my strengths and I work on my strengths, but the little points I want to get better and it's constant".

"He [Rashford] has still played a lot of football, although maybe not the continuous starts and I'm really pleased for him that he leaves England full of confidence".
