When Rashford is at his best, his pace coupled with his trickery makes him a frightening prospect for any defence in the league. Rashford can also link up brilliantly with the likes of Fernandes, Martial and Pogba and his ability to play both on the wing and up top also means he starts most games.
Despite Rashford’s stats looking impressive this season, the Mancunian has scored most of his goals in batches and with just four goals in his last 13 games, there are still question marks over Rashford’s ability to consistently put the ball in the back of the net and it's one which needs addressing.
Add this to there being two better finishers than him on the bench in Cavani and Greenwood, there is extreme pressure on the striker for his place. And in truth, despite Rashford’s pace and trickery, this is something that United have in abundance with the likes of Pogba, Martial and Greenwood which makes it not a necessity for Rashford to make the starting XI,
A player like Cavani can add goals week in, week out, but it seems Rashford cannot. His hat-trick against RB Leipzig, and a double against Sheffield United mean Rashford has only score in 10 out of the 32 games he has played in; this is far from good enough for a title challenge.
