Manchester United are represented in the latest Premier League team of the week that has been selected by BBC pundit Garth Crooks.

Actually Garth is now down as a ‘Football Analyst’ these days, a posh term for a pundit then!

The performance by Marcus Rashford in the one nil victory over Hull City at the weekend at the KCOM Stadium was enough to earn them a place in the side alongside the other, in the opinion of the former Spurs striker anyway, most impressive performers in the topflight over the latest weekend.

I think we’ll already know ourselves, and not just based on the latest performance, why Crooks, we’ll also not argue with it, selected Rashford as part of his team but explaining his choice he told the BBC.

‘This kid is going to be a massive star. Marcus Rashford is not afraid of the big stage and he certainly does not fluff his lines when the spotlight is on him. Against Hull, – who were magnificent by the way – Rashford’s appearance in the 71st minute was the spark that ignited United’s flame and his goal indicative of the player’s desire. Of course, none of this would have happened without the timely contribution of Rooney. I suggest Rashford watches every move his captain makes in the months ahead because he could be filling those boots in the not too distant future.’

It’s always good to see the club represented in this way, and well played to Rashford for his recognition, but the most important thing about the weekend was of course the three points.

Full Team:

Artur Boruc (Bournemouth), Curtis Davies (Hull City), Scott Dann (Crystal Palace), Wes Morgan (Leicester City), Danny Drinkwater (Leicester City), David Silva (Manchester City), N’Golo Kante (Chelsea), Eden Hazard (Chelsea), Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United).
