Manchester United put out a fine performance against Swansea in the Round of 16 match of the Carabao Cup. The Reds Devils won the match comfortably thanks to a brace by Jesse Lingard. While Lingard stole most of the headlines but what Rashford did on the pitch did not go unnoticed.

Rashford was seen encouraging defender Victor Lindelof during the match. The Serbian defender joined Manchester United during the summer from Benfica and since then he has faced a very tough challenge of settling down in England. Lindelof has only played 2 Premier League games and his last outing against Huddersfield ended in a disaster.

The 23-year-old though has been featuring in the Cup games and it was against Swansea where Rashford was seen boosting the confidence of the centre-back. Marcus Rashford who is three years younger to Lindelof but the English International showed a calm head on his shoulder and helped out his teammate.

Future captain material maybe?
