Martial backing his brother against that wannabe United flop.

Commentators also need to stop that rivalry shite.

Mourinho had some convinced both couldn't play together.

Love them. Such a good understanding together, thank feck we gave Ole the chance as Mourinho was set to get rid of 1 or both of them. Both have developed into top, top players and just seem to have a great relationship too. On top of all that, excellent in big games.

It's changed, the body language is good between them. I remember there were times under Jose they wouldn't play each other in. They are playing for the team and properly linking up as a pair. The maturity and the consistency is really starting. It's exciting times.

The last thing on the list now would be to send both of them to ball heading classes.

They really combine so well with each other and are totally on the same wavelength. When did this last happen, maybe Rooney with Ronaldo?

I’m genuinely at the edge of my seat, ever since restart, anytime the ball is at the feet of either of them inside the box as I fully expect the net to bulge.

Don’t matter. We are shit at crosses anyway. We also don’t play with out and out wingers. With inside forwards there are less crosses coming in.

Any chance we can start calling them Doc and Marty?

No? Just me then?

More importantly, both have big impacts in big games. Definitely a partnership we have to keep for a long, long time.

That's why I never ever wanted a new striker, I want to see them succeed, and they are on the right path to be one of the best attackers in the league.

This after they were, for a few months, linking up well during LVG reign.

I guess for once caftards were telling the truth. They fell asleep.

They’re even celebrating each other’s near misses. Martial used to play with his head down a bit but he’s now so keen to play Rashford in for opportunities that they both know another chance is coming so they can give the ball up.

Very exciting duo.

Rashford has assisted Martial 5 times in league, that is bettered only by Aguero - KdB And Jimenz - Traore.

Martial has assisted Rashford 2 times.

Again Martial missed around 2 months, same with Rashford and this is the first time they are playing together instead of competing with each other (except few months in 2015-16)

There’s a real feeling that these two can pull a quality goal out of nothing when we need it, as well as being able to score when things are going well.

While I’m happy with current formation til the end of the season, it’ll be interesting to see next season if we can play them as a two up top. When Ole first took over he played a front two in a couple of away games early on. I recall that Spurs was one of them, where we won 1-0. It let us play with a diamond in the middle, which isn’t my favourite formation but has its uses when you need control of midfield. With those two up front able to create chances with minimal support, it could be a good way to handle tougher away games.

They look brilliant together, lots of nice passes, flicks, one twos, they're always on the move trying to find space and are always close to each other in the sense one can pass another or put him in a dangerous position. Dare to say shades of Cole and Yorke although they were different kind of players somewhat. :)

Honestly, I would take Zaha back.
Would even throw in a player to sweeten the deal.

Tony and Rashford understand each other so well.

I wonder where they would be in their development if Lvg hadn't failed. I like to think we would be playing some kind of 2 striker formation.

Remember for how long it was going to be only one or the other that would make it here? Mental that they haven't played together more in previous seasons. They actually showed this relationship in some of the first games they ever played together back in 2015/16, and now it's happening regularly they've just flourished. I love watching them and I'm so happy for them that things have clicked, wanted this for so long.

Where would you play him though? His best position is left wing, and no way is he better than Rashford.

If they continue on their current trajectory next season and are a bit more lucky with injuries, they could both get near or reach a century in goals for United.

Martial is 30 away and Rashford is 33

Not sure where to post this video, it's amazing how it changed from "Rashford vs Martial" to "Rashford and Martial".

What an asshole that guy was, he should have been sacked after that interview.
Shades of Ronnie and Wazza, may not be thesame quality. Difference is we have Greenwood and hopefully Sancho to boot. Good times will come back am sure.

The combination is bloody good.

And the chemistry is growing :devil: individually their talents are also improving.

So hand-in-hand, that's going to be an exponential growth.
Web of Bissaka how about you use this off season and learn how to control a ball and dont look awkward with it so you can support Sancho properly next season. What do you say?

How much time does this "Boy" Martial need? He is not a striker.

Overrated, Over hyped, He is not a Manchester United player. Time to get rid.

No wonder he can't make the France squad. He is probably the most overrated player United have had in the last few seasons.
Aged well...

I've payed attention to alot of the fans who wanted Mourinho after LVG - it was the same fans who called Rashford and Martial average, poor or over hyped - the next welbeck or whatever.

I dont bring up the fans name to bring up that they were wrong - but man when they are wrong they are so wrong.

Alot of our 'fans' are average.
