As Manchester United’s encounter with newly-promoted Hull City entered into second half stoppage time, it looked like the game would end goalless; the travelling supporters as miserable as the Humberside weather. But cometh the hour, cometh the boy, Marcus Rashford, to be precise. The teenage substitute came on to bag a low Wayne Rooney cross from point-blank range, sending the United fans into elation.
It certainly wasn’t the most convincing of performances from José Mourinho’s side, but it’s difficult to argue with three wins from three games, especially with new players and a new manager still getting to grips with each other. United and Chelsea are the only two sides on nine points after Saturday’s fixtures, though Manchester City could join us at the top of the table if they manage to beat West Ham in what should be an entertaining fixture later on Sunday.
