Revealed: 76% of Man Utd fans want Martial to replace Mata for Chelsea clash

Jose Mourinho will be welcoming his former club Chelsea to Old Trafford on Sunday and the Manchester United boss will have a decision to make over whether he plays former Blue Juan Mata on the right wing or Anthony Martial instead.

The Spaniard, who has been capped 41 times by his country, started for the Red Devils during their 2-0 victory against Huddersfield Town and in midweek against Sevilla in the Champions League, however, it could be the perfect time to bring the pacey 22-year-old back into the side.

The France international, who is valued at £58.5million by Transfermarkt, has been put onto the right-hand side of the pitch in recent weeks, following the arrival of Alexis Sanchez, but he has failed to get going.

With the massive match against Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side coming up, we asked the Manchester United supporters earlier in the week who they would rather have playing on the right; Mata or Martial?

And our poll showed that the vast majority of Red Devil fans would like to see the 17-cap France winger to get the nod over the more experienced playmaker, with 76% of the vote.
