The England international was one of seven changes made by Jose Mourinho the Premier League clash on the South Coast, following on from the weekend’s 1-0 defeat at home to West Brom.
And whilst Rashford didn’t quite managed to find the net in United’s 2-0 victory, he definitely put in an eye-catching display in a wide attacking role, and it seems to have caught the attention of the club’s supporters:
After tonight. Rashford deserves to start over Martial against Spurs.

With rivals Manchester City having already claimed the Premier League crown for this season, Saturday’s semi-final against Tottenham represents the last opportunity for a trophy for United and Mourinho this season.
The Special One will no doubt pore over his starting XI before the mouthwatering clash at Wembley, but do you think Rashford should be selected to start?
