Rashford on Thursday scored twice against Midtjylland in a Europa League game and then repeated the feat on his English Premier League (EPL) debut against Arsenal on Sunday.

"He needs to keep calm," Mata was quoted as saying by the Guardian on Tuesday.

"Everyone is going to call him, text him, speak about him and write about him, but he needs to keep calm because I think he has a bright future coming up ahead of him - he needs to keep playing his football."

The Spain international said Rashford is similar to his teammate and strike partner Anthony Martial who is presently out with an injury.

"He looks similar to Anthony Martial in a way, they're both quick and go against the defenders, they both have goals in their pocket. It's not about comparing, it's about taking profit from them," Mata said.

Along with Rashford, Timothy Fosu-Mensah was given his chance against Arsenal when Marcos Rojo had to be substituted for an injury and James Weir managed to sneak in five minutes of injury time after replacing Ander Herrera.
