Everton manager Frank Lampard was also full of praise for Rashford, saying “no one can stop” the 25-year-old when he is in the kind of form he has shown since the World Cup.

“He has great skills and when he has that mental stability he can continue, but it demands a lot from him and from us, but when he has that focus I’m sure he can continue this process.”
