Footage has emerged of Marcus Rashford and Harry Maguire in an on-pitch spat following Anthony Martial's red card during Manchester United ’s 6-1 defeat to Tottenham last weekend.

The Red Devils were truly embarrassed by former manager Jose Mourinho as his Spurs side ran riot at Old Trafford on Sunday.

The home sides plight was made more difficult by a red card to lone striker Martial after just 28 minutes.

The Frenchman was sent for an early bath after he appeared to drag his hand across Erik Lamela’s face, in response to the Argentine planting his elbow on Martial’s neck.

Lamela was only shown a yellow card for his part in the first half drama, which left Rashford fuming with referee Anthony Taylor.

The footage shows the England forward asking: “Nothing for that elbow?”

He then continued: “Why? It’s the same.”

But his captain Maguire interjected: “It’s not violent conduct, they’ve checked.”

“He’s elbowed him!” exclaimed Rashford in response.

But Maguire, appearing to side with the referee, maintained: “They’ve checked it, and said it’s not.

“How’s it not? How?” the dumbfounded Rashford responded.

Solskjaer sided with Rashford after the game, slamming Lamela’s reaction to Martial’s retort, and insisting he would not want to see his players behave the same way.

“For me, of course, two emotions on it really,” said the Norwegian. “Well done to Anthony for not going down and for not trying to con the referee to send Lamela off.

“Anthony knows he cannot react like this, but it’s an absolute joke for me that a lad can go down like that.

“If that was my son he would live on water and bread for two weeks. That’s not how I want my players to react.”
