However Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left frustrated with United's finishing, and Rashford was the main culprit, with the manager saying, "How we didn't end up with five, six or seven, we don't know".
The full-back suffered ankle ligament damage in August that prevented him from making much of an impact during the early stages of the season.
He has since returned and Lampard has now welcomed competition in the full-back areas.

However, the Chelsea legend says he's relishing the problems that could pose in regards to selection and has praised James for seizing his opportunity.
But shortly after his 79th-minute goal - his fifth goal in the last three Premier League games - Pulisic was subbed off with a hip injury.
When asked about informing Azpilicueta of his decision to play James, Lampard told reporters: "It's part of my job". It is actually a decision [I've made] when Azpilicueta is playing really well for us.

"Azpi is such a great personality and character". He feels for the club and wants the best, that shows how much I value him now and going forward. It is a nice problem.
Beto O'Rourke drops out of 2020 race
As O'Rourke leaves the campaign trail to come home to Texas, he returns to a state with a booming economy and strong job growth. Carlson then compared O'Rourke supporters to those of "an indie rock band that wasn't very good but was considered cool".
'In the first weekend, I was anxious and I am still anxious, ' he said during Sky's Premier League coverage on Sunday. A real threat and on the counter-attack.
"You can see how comfortable he is with the ball at his feet and his delivery and passing so I was pleased".
Lampard added: "It is hard with the expectations at the start of the season was belief in the younger players because I felt they deserved a chance but there's always a question mark that you don't know until you see them there".
"But he has been training at a level and coming on at a level where he deserves his minutes today".
