Rashford's late show sparks wild celebrations at Hull

Mass celebrations

Jose Mourinho's stunning start as Manchester United boss continued on Saturday, as Marcus Rashford grabbed a last-gasp winner at Hull City.

United's new boss has kicked off his tenure with an impressive four wins on the bounce as the Red Devils left it late on Humberside.

The manner of the victory, a once trademark injury-time steal, bodes well - prompting a display of delirium and euphoria in the Red Army's away end.

United's travelling fans were housed only yards from the spot in which Rashford turned home a Wayne Rooney cross, to bag another maximum point haul for the Red Devils. Rashford's goal proved the only strike of a game in which the away team were rarely troubled, and always looked more likely to score.

Perseverance ultimately paid; with Rooney and summer acquisitions Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba having earlier gone close.

After a brilliant start, with the Community Shield in the cabinet and three league wins chalked up, the tests now get even bigger for Mourinho. Next up - a Manchester derby, before Feyenoord in the Champions League.

Full Time - Hull City 0-1 Manchester United (Attendance - 24,560)
