Should Martial be the #9?

While I’m very not much a fan of Martial at 9, he doesn’t track back in the same way Rashford does which last week we saw was one of the key ways we wrestled back control of the match.

Is Rash’s workrate something that means he has to play on the left?

Possibly. His movement from the left is also far better - it's one criticism I've always had with Martial out there, that he doesn't get himself into nearly as many goalscoring positions as he should. Martial is the more clinical of the 2 though.

If I'm honest I prefer Martial on the left but I can see why Ole's done it.

He is not our 9 in the truest sense. He is going to rotate with Rashford depending on opposition.

The forwards will switch throughout the games

Robb, if you think he should not be, then please list your reasons. If you think he should, again list your reasons. I think Rashfordand him changingpposition during matches and given that Martial seems to be the better finisher stat wise, the current system seems to be set up for both to flourish.
