Manchester United Fans Having Something To Shout About With New Front Three

Manchester United Fans Having Something To Shout About With New Front Three

Manchester United's front three of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood had many fans talking on Thursday night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side ran out comfortable 3-0 winners against Partizan Belgrade to ensure their place in the Europa League last 32.

But the big talking point during the game was the link up play between 'The Red Devils' front three.

United fans were loving the interchanges between their young forwards.

It's the first time that they have all lined up together from the start and it's safe to say many fans think it should be the regular front three.

Mason Greenwood opened the scoring for United in the 21st minute.

The 18-year-old coolly slotted past Vladimir Stojkovic after Rashford's prodded ball through the Partizan defence.

Greenwood then turned provider for the second goal when laying the ball off to Martial who danced through the Partizan defence to score his fifth goal of the season.

Martial's goal marked the first time United had scored more than one goal in the first half at Old Trafford since January.

United remained in charge throughout the rest of the half and could have scored more if not for vital stops by Stojkovic.

Rashford got in on the act in the second half and scored his fifth goal in five games after rifling a left footed shot into the top corner.

It was a great return for form to United after Saturday's disappointing 1-0 defeat to Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

The only blemish on the evening from United's perspective was Scott McTominay hobbling off in the second half.

United's next game is against Brighton on Sunday afternoon.

You have to think that Solskjaer may pick the same front three given their impact on tonight's game.
