.

Jose Mourinho has opted against having Martial and Rashford together on the field at the same time more often than not this season with both players adopting a left-wing role.

But the United boss has made it work for the talented duo with both players enjoying a fine start to the season.

Rashford is seeing more game time after playing a back-up role to Zlatan Ibrahimovic last season and has five goals already this campaign.

And Martial has the same amount of goals while also proving unselfish with six assists.
