    We would be lucky if Chong makes Rashford level of impact for first team. Chong is 19, at that age, Rashford scored important goals in winning us FA cup and Europa league.

    Don't you think that Chong's vision and composure are way too limited for a top player?

    He's really good at dribbling but unlike a Greenwood or a Gomes he doesn't have a great awareness on any players that aren't immediately challenging him.

    Rashford was lucky we had a injury crisis and a manager who has taken the biggest risks with young players in LVG.

    Yeah, and luck scored free kick away at Celta Vigo, or winner in QFs. Same luck also scored goals vs West Ham.

    Chong has done nothing at top level to compare him to Rashford, absolutely nothing. There is a huge difference between U23s and top level football.

    He's a young player. He'll have bad spells. Tonight was shocking. Maybe he needs a rest.

    Though that Greenwood kid is steps above talent wise than Rashford. If given chances he'll definitely be kept in the first team. That kid is good.

    I normally don't rave about academy kids like most caftards but that kid is ridiculously talented.

    Chong is actually very good with his passing and vision. I've seen him cut inside and play beautiful passes out wide or through to the forwards many times. He reminds me of Di Maria in that regard. But time will tell I guess. He needs to get slightly stronger, but I think there's much more to come from him.

    Yeah I agree that two footedness of his will take him right at the very top it just gives him so much more goal scoring opportunities that most forwards won’t take.

    Add that to his composure in front of goal and everything else and you’ve got a monster of a talent there.

    Chong has better dribbling skills than Rashford, is what I claimed.. Chong also had a serious injury where he was on the sidelines for a year. Give him time and i'm confident he'll prove me correct.

    Dribbling at U23 level is different from going same at pro level. If Rashford plays for U23s, he will smash everyone. Rashford is better than Chong at everything except hair.

    Rashford hasn't seemed fit to me since the injury in the Liverpool game , feel like he is playing in pain

    His form is becoming a problem. Absolute trash at the moment. I'd let him sit out the next one.

    Looks like he needs a little break, looks tired and a bit sloppy now. Six days off will be good.

    Him and Lukaku where very poor particularly in the first half. Arsenal playing that type of high press/line should have been mouth watering but he was anonymous.

    Showed bottle to take a penalty against PSG. Great. However, still very raw. His performance today was shambolic. Usually when we go a goal down he starts to go on random runs and doesnt release the ball quick enough. He did the same today, Ole must be telling him to release the ball quickly but it doesnt get through. As a player Rashford has the physicality, pace and belter of a shot/cross on him. However, this is not enough to be a top striker. His heading is one of the worst, his decision making is poor, 1v1 he is average (he is improving though). The main point to talk about is his movement. For a guy so agile and fast he doesnt use it enough. Ole was talking about how he is trying to tell Rashford to move in the box and score more tap ins. Rashfords movement needs to improve, his intelligence on the pitch is nowhere near Kanes/Mbappes standard. He came through the academy very quickly and is very raw. He is still a great talent and has the work ethic. If he works hard he could be a top player in the next 3-4 years. Nowhere near ready to lead the line at the moment, this is something Ive said before and is not an overreaction. We need a striker to lead the line next season, Lukaku doesn't have the consistency to help Rashford.

    You should probably rewatch his first 2 months under Ole if you've missed those games.

    He is probably our quickest player, has the best workrate from all attackers, has the best shooting in the team, and probably the best movement of all pur forward, and is probably our (second)best dribbler. Also has a decent cross on him and takes good set pieces.

    But yeah, it's difficult to find what he is goid at when you don't like him and especially when you want to discuss him only during his worst form.

    I noticed him taking on players, looking like outpacing them to go clear on goal only for the split second of a doubt that enables defenders to nick it off him. Not this particular game but in general. Mostly down to decision-making, which will improve.With each season he collects the tools neccessary to become a top player.

    He probably is our quickest player, but his dribbling and finishing isn't good enough to be either our winger or no9. I don't dislike him at all, but a manchester United striker needs to be offering much more than what we've seen from him.

    Oh, I was an attempted shot, no doubt. He has the confidence of a top striker, but his skills haven’t caught up with that confidence.

    It could be. And so much of his game depends on his running and his speed.

    Yeah that was really weird. Near the end he also had that free header straight at the goalkeeper. He couldnt really do anything right today.

    When I said earlier on this thread that he isn't great on the wings, I got blasted 'cause he was in a rich vein of form

    I do feel sorry for the kid though, the one spot he has actually flourished in recently is where we now have a player in better form (lukaku)

    Compared to him, martial has had it easy as Sanchez has flopped his auditions so he can be rest assured he is the main LW

    As for Rashford, I believe if we revert back to our earlier attacking shape under ole (rash, lingz and Martial) with he being the sole CF then his form will pick up once again, it just wouldn't be fair on lukaku

    For now, I don't see Rashford and lukaku excelling in the same lineup at the same time unless the former becomes more dynamic and less selfish.. in essence, he grows up.

    The guy has played through injury and despite not being fully fit for weeks covering for our other injured players. He just need a good rest and he will be back firing on all cylinders.

    To me it definitely looks like his biggest problem right now is form and attitude. Especially his attitude towards his form. He's been underperforming for quite some time now, but still radiates this Ronaldo-esque 'it doesn't matter how I play' aura way too often. Really don't enjoy seeing that. Apart from his penalty (which was obviously fantastic), he was really poor against PSG too. Once his turns his form around again, he'll be amazing. I'm just a little worried he's getting more and more carried away by all the hype.

    The level people go to just so they can defend an academy player. Greenwood showed more intelligence and technical ability on the pitch in the few moments he was playing. Rashford was never as highly rated at youth level. Rashford has pace, character, physicality and a good cross. His finishing is one dimensional not only in how he angles for a shot but in terms of heading and both footed shooting. His movement is below average in the box, this is something Ole has hinted at himself when mentioning he is trying to motivate Rashford to score tap ins like Lukaku. His decision making is the worst out of all our attackers. He is not ready to lead the line for United. Hopefully he will be one day but we need to get rid of Lukaku and sign another striker.

    He really needs a rest. Usually under Ole he’s rampaging around the field, causing chaos for defenders. Ever since he pulled up during the Liverpool game he seems like a fraction of the player. A rest will do him a lot of good I think.

    Fully agree mate. We have the worst strikers in the top 6 by far. Rashford likely will never be good enough and Lukaku certainly isn't. Genuinely worried for the future as I can see Ole staying on and not being ruthless enough with some of the average players in our squad.

    Needs a rest. Horrible today but he was very bad in the last two matches too, just that the ice cool penalty and the euphoria didn't put an emphasis in his performances.

    Zero complaint from me.

    Great effort, but things just didn't work at all for him for this game -- right idea but he couldn't pull it off this time.

    Has been largely underwhelming for a while, penalty aside.

    Bench him for Wolves. He's always more of an impact than Martial when it comes to being subbed on.

    He needs 2-3 years to be top class player. he rushes and lacks composure at times.He is only 21.
