Manchester United continued their fine form under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as they dismantled Fulham this weekend.
A brace from Paul Pogba and a fine solo goal from Anthony Martial put the icing on the cake for the Red Devils, who moved into the top four and stayed there with Chelsea failing to win at Man City.
For Soslkjaer, he must be delighted to see his players putting in such performances, and we here in the Tavern have been particularly impressed by two particular players during the Norwegian’s time in charge.
Those two players at pacey front-men Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford, who have been nothing short of superb since the departure of Jose Mourinho.
The speedsters have been getting in and amongst the goals, with Rashford in particular hitting top form in front of goal and making the starting striking spot his own ahead of Romelu Lukaku.
Martial to his credit has been superb too when selected, and his goal yesterday was a timely reminder of the quality he possesses when he chooses to turn it on.
For us here in the Tavern, we feel United need to build around the pair for years to come, and there can’t be many teams in the world who have two players with such quality, pace, and finishing ability among their front players.
United can be successful going forward with Martial and Rashford as the core of their plans, and there’s every reason to believe the trophies will flow with both players hitting their stride.
United fans, do you agree? Let us know in the comments!
