I think Rashford as a lone striker doesn't suit us. Mourinho teams almost always rely on that big number 9 who can hold the ball up and win headers. Drogba, Lukaku, Ibra they are all Mourinho types.
Considering a lot of our lads have had busy summers with the World Cup I didn't care how we won last night or to be honest how we win in the next 3-4 games just get the points.
I think Matic will be straight back in the side he was fantastic for large parts of the season last season.
Leicester do look a decent side though I think thats worth pointing out I can see them finishing in the top 8.
Rashford as a lone striker doesn’t suit any team. He was terrible as a striker for England at the World Cup and he had Vardy alongside him.
He takes about 30 seconds to decide what to do with the ball before losing it. Screws up nearly every counter as a result of that. We can use the excuse that he is young. But he does it nearly every game. He had a purple patch with LVG, but for the last two years he’s been poor the majority of the games he has started. He can’t dribble past players or isn’t good in tight spaces to be a good winger. It would be crazy if we let Martial go and he stays.
If he wasn’t from the academy he would be blasted like Depay was.
The excuse he is young doesn’t buy with me. You look at Sterling he has the skill to get in good shooting positions but it’s his finishing or end product that lets him down. Rashford doesn’t have the skill to get in those positions. He’s just always ponderous on the ball. He should have been loaned out.
