Give Rashford time to shine, insists Southgate

Lukaku left Chelsea and found his feet at Everton before moving back to a top-six team

Fellow full-back Diogo Dalot is not expected to make his debut in the Premier League, and is likely to be held back for the Derby Carabao Cup match later in the month.

Rashford has started just once for United this season, but twice with England in the space of four days.

Rashford has managed double digits in goals the past two seasons, while Ronaldo first achieved that feat in 2005-06, as he turned 21.

Lukaku has been in fine form in recent weeks, and he has netted six goals in five games for both club and country.

Rashford's contribution to the games against Switzerland and Spain has reopened the debate about whether the 20-year-old should keep his place alongside Harry Kane as England's second striker instead of Raheem Sterling.

Claiming the United Academy graduate's development may be best served away from Old Trafford. Opportunities opened up at Spurs partly because of the failings of other, far more expensively acquired strikers.

Gareth Southgate has expressed frustration about Phil Foden's lack of first-team involvement for Manchester City and warned England's senior players they can not expect to keep their places if they are not involved more regularly for their club sides. "José [Mourinho] thinks the world of Marcus - he's a huge admirer of him - but he has his job to do".

A United source said: "Marcus loves the club and does not want to move but he wants to be a striker or at least play down the middle as a No 10".

Having had little time to impress in a Man United shirt this season, Rashford has taken the opportunity of the worldwide break to remind English football fans of his talent.

Mourinho's side will be looking to end Watford's flawless start in the new campaign in a Premier League match set for Vicarage Road.

There is also competition with England, although the manager believes he can fit Rashford, Kane and Raheem Sterling into the same XI. "He's got huge competition for places at his club, so you can understand (his frustration)".

"If I'm him I'm kicking the door down as I want to play - I want to play for Man United", Adam told talkSPORT.

Exercise: The youngster will have benefited from his playing time with England.
