Revealed: Manchester United fans want Rashford to lead the line during Sunday’s derby clash

Manchester United must travel the short distance to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday where they’ll meet Pep Guardiola’s reigning champions, Manchester City.

The Red Devils arrive in 7th place in the table and already nine points short of table-toppers City. Though, whilst on paper this ought to be a fairly straightforward victory for the Cityzens, this fierce local rivalry often serves up surprises. 

In order for United to stand any chance of victory though, Jose Mourinho must get his team selection right. A problem position for United right now is the centre-forward role.

In Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez, they have two big-money stars in awful goalscoring form. Therefore, for this huge derby clash, Mourinho should be bold and entrust the central striking duties to the 21-year-old 29-cap England man, Marcus Rashford.

United fans certainly seem to favour Rashford. In our poll, he received a total of 58 votes. Second choice Sanchez was trailed by the big Belgian No. 9, Lukaku, who amassed an embarrassing -20 score. See the full results below.
