Manchester United vs Burton Albion, EFL Cup Highlight as Mourinho's men begin EFL Cup defence in style

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial shone as Manchester United kicked off their EFL Cup defence by sweeping aside Championship team Burton Albion 4-1.

The attacking duo, deployed together for the first time in the starting XI this season, each found the net at Old Trafford as United booked their spot in the fourth round.

Jose Mourinho picked a strong side, featuring the mouth-watering front three of Martial, Rashford and Jesse Lingard.

And their quality was in evidence immediately, the hosts moving ahead in the fourth minute through Rashford's cool finish.

That opened the floodgates as United entered the break 3-0 ahead, Rashford adding a second before Lingard got in on the act.

Martial capped his fine display by finding the net in the 60th minute, before Burton grabbed a consolation through Lloyd Dyer with virtually the game's last kick.
