Rashford and Martial to start together as Manchester United face Bournemouth

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might have employed three at the back strategy during his last outing, however, it will be interesting to see whether he uses the same strategy yet again when they face Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

Starting Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial has been greatly effective and thus we reckon that it will be a great combination upfront.

Here is what a starting XI against Eddie Howe’s side could, therefore, look like.

Manchester United manager Solskjaer appears to have finally zeroed upon his ideal combination going forward, with Daniel James making diagonal runs from the right while Marcus Rashford, over on the other side, works closer with Martial.

Both Rashford and Martial are versatile players and thus have the ability to interchange their playing position and hence have the ability to confuse and stretch opposition defence which helps Andreas Pereira exploit the created gaps in behind with his great control and passing.

Many Manchester United fans would like to see Brandon Williams starting again after he showed great potential against Chelsea, however, it will be more suitable for Ole to keep rotating the team a bit so that the squad can remain fresh.
