Man Utd ace Rashford looks ahead to derby after impressing Allardyce

Marcus Rashford has quickly cast his attention to this weekend's Manchester derby.

The Manchester United striker scored a hat-trick and took Man of the Match honours in his first match for the England U21 side in their 6-1 Euro2017 qualifying win over Norway on Tuesday.

Rashford, 18, feels he has now provided United boss Jose Mourinho with a headache while also putting himself at the forefront of England senior team manager Sam Allardyce's mind.

"That's all you want to do as a young player, give your manager a decision about whether to play you," he said.

"I'm looking forward to (the derby). It means a lot (that Allardyce was here).

"It's the England seniors, there is a new manager and they are doing well. Everyone is working hard to get into that side, so it was important that he was here to see our development."
