Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford is in fine form heading into the huge Premier League clash against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, and Red Devils fans are backing him to once again start over Anthony Martial and do the business on the pitch.
The 19-year-old has started all but one of United’s seven top flight fixtures this season – often meaning Martial has entered the action from the substitutes’ bench – and he has scored five goals and provided a further four assists in 11 appearances in all competitions.
While his French teammate is also in good form and didn’t feature for his country during the international break like Rashford did for England, the Old Trafford faithful believe the teenager will make an impact against Jurgen Klopp’s men on Saturday like he has against Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea in the past.
Man United supporters were quick to have their say on Rashford via social media, and while some said “it’s his time to do it against the Scousers”, others believe he “works far harder without the ball” than Martial and therefore must start.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…

I would stick to the usual plan. Rashford to run their defence into the ground and then bring Martial on for the kill shot.

Rashford should start with Martial coming off the bench in the last 15-20 mins

So that when the Liverpool back is exhausted, we unleash Martial https://t.co/TvEw2D6Tkg

Two possible lineups for today. Can't see Martial starting, as Rashford works far harder without the ball and still produces on the ball. pic.twitter.com/3zbbxKmzdh
