Manchester United fans are desperate to see Martial and Rashford start together

Manchester United suffered defeat away to Chelsea on Sunday, drifting further behind rivals Manchester City at the top of the English Premier League table.

Jose Mourinho again set his team up defensively in a match against one of the big English teams, but this time it backfired with Alvaro Morata managing to pierce the Red Devils’ defensive line and bury a header past David De Gea.

United couldn’t then muster enough of an attacking response and despite the likes of Marcus Rashford showing heart, they couldn’t create a chance to equalise.

Fans are growing weary of Mourinho’s tactics and selection calls with many now calling for Rashford to be aided in the final third by Anthony Martial. The duo have largely been kept apart this season, usually coming on and off the bench for each other.

Now though, supporters want to see them play together as part of a front three with Romelu Lukaku.

Would that be the answer to United’s problems or does Mourinho have it right playing pragmatic football?
