Describing striker Marcus Rashford as 'marvellous', Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is full of praise for the teenage sensation after his last-gasp winner guided the club to a 1-0 triumph over Hull City in third match of the ongoing Premier League.

After both sides failed to score a goal in the first half, substitute Rashford struck the match-winning goal just two minutes into the injury time to ensure his side finish the match on a winning note at the KCOM Stadium.

Following the match, Mourinho admitted the England international has been working really well for the side, the Mirror reported.

The Portuguese, however, said he was pleased with the way the whole team played defensively in the second half of the match.

Meanwhile, Rashford said he was happy to get the three points for the side in his first away game of the season, while insisting that he was learning a lot from the experienced players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Manchester United, who won all the three games of the Premier League so far, will play their next match against Manchester City on September 10.
