Rashford, 21, made his 150th Manchester United appearance in the 2-1 win over Brighton on Sunday, reaching the mark at a younger age than both Rooney and Ronaldo.

Scoring against Australia in the third minute, Rashford became the youngest Englishman to net on his worldwide bow.

Asked if Rashford is at the level of Ronaldo and Rooney, Solskjær said: "Yes".

Solskjaer has been so impressed with his form that he suggested that he might be the best striker in the country at present, saying: '[Harry] Kane is injured so maybe that gives him [Rashford] a better chance to be the best one at the moment'. "You start with the work rate because that's what he's got - he works like no one else".

Rashford struggled to find the net under Mourinho, managing just 13 goals in 52 games last season.

Rashford, in particular, appears to have become more clinical in front of goal, with the tutelage of former striker Solskjaer no doubt helping.

"The way he works during the week is fantastic because he practices a lot".

Towards the end Rashford drew a booking for a heavy tackle on Martín Montoya, having taken a painful challenge from the same player moments before.

Born in the south Manchester suburb of Wythenshawe, Rashford has long appeared destined to join the lengthy list of homegrown United legends.

"He is a proper Manc. You need small details of course, but the biggest thing the players need is to just go play and to go enjoy yourself". He will stand up for a fight and stand up for himself and a team-mate.

However, despite going 2-0 up before half-time, with Rashford's goal following a Paul Pogba penalty, United endured a nervous finish after Pascal Gross scored for Brighton with 19 minutes left.

"We can be even more clinical", the captain said. "We could have scored two or three in the second half". We didn't do that.

They could have added to their lead after the interval and put the game to bed, but poor defending from a cross allowed the Seagulls to get one back.
