The idea of Marcus Rashford having a banner at Anfield has been greeted with a mixed audience.

Manchester United take on Liverpool this Sunday in a first vs second Premier League clash.

The two teams are currently locked in an exciting title race, and with the intense rivalry this Sunday's should be a belter.

But ahead of the clash it has been mooted by some fans that Rashford deserves a banner at Anfield. Probably a suggestion no Liverpool fan would have thought previously possible.

But the United forward's excellent work in campaigning against child food poverty has had a significant impact in the north west.

A Marcus Rashford banner has been proposed at Anfield.

Going head-to-head with the Government has earned the respect of football fans from every team.

And, ahead of Sunday's fixture, one Liverpool fan tweeted: "Have any Liverpool fan groups arranged for a banner to be on the Kop this weekend for Marcus Rashford? Hunger has no colours. Thank you, Marcus."

The proposal has gathered traction, with it being discussed in Liverpool fan forums and groups.

Rashford has done some brilliant work outside of football in recent months.

And so far the idea has received a mixed reaction.

One fan posted: "He has 100% earned my respect and I expect I'm not alone in that. I'll applaud him fighting for what he has the whole way, but yeah we can't be putting up a banner for a United player."

Another said: "I'd back it 100%. As a local Liverpool resident and UK resident hes doing wonders for the whole country. Including hungry scousers. If there were fans in the stadium he'd get a standing ovation."

A Liverpool supporter replied: "Not for me. Can respect what he's done without putting a banner for a United player in the Kop."

Rashford would normally be considered an enemy of Liverpool as a United player.

Another said: "Give the lad a banner. He's feeding scouse kids too. He's doing God's work and we should make a point of that now before the right-wing press properly turn on him - which they will inevitably do.

"Anyone not down with celebrating this lad's work has got their priorities muddled. If you're sat comfy with a full fridge miles away from Liverpool, maybe sit this one out."

Another fan said: "Not sold on a banner but this guy is a hero that goes above football.

"Give him a clap and be done with it."

A fan said: "He is a working class hero. Feeding kids is more important than football tribalism.

"This would be merely symbolic in the grand scheme of things, but it would still be a powerful message of unity in what are very hopeless times for many."
