Rashford and Martial started together and boy did that work out well for United!

Jose Mourinho let the youngsters run riot at Old Trafford as they took on Nigel Clough's men in United's opening match of this year's EFL Cup. The Red Devils wasted no time getting into the groove and Rashford opened the scoring with a neat little lob over Ripley in the 5th minute. He followed it up with a spectacular strike from 25 yards out. After that, it was all Anthony Martial who danced rings around the Burton defence and set up Lingard for the 3rd goal. The Frenchman finally got his goal after Rashford freed him up with a delightful through ball.

Joel Pereira fumbled and let Burton pull one back in the dying embers of the game.

Manchester United's frontmen were all having fun and Anthony Martial was at his menacing best. This is how Twitterati reacted to Mourinho's men's dominant display.

Anthony Martial was the man of the match and for good reason!

We start off with the mandatory 50m down the drain


Marcus Rashford's second goal was an absolute screamer

Jose Mourinho's problems are not really problems.

Juan Mata did wave his wand a few times tonight

Martial's feet should feature in Fevicol ads

And finally, some schadenfreude
