Manchester United will host Arsenal this Sunday.
This game will be an opportunity for both teams to get their ship back on track after a topsy-turvy start to the 2020-21 Premier League campaign.
The Red Devils sit at 15th in the league – garnering seven points from five games. Arsenal, on the other hand, bagged nine in six games.
Here, we have taken a brief look at who could be those game-changing three prodigies for Manchester United this weekend.
#3 Mason Greenwood
Greenwood emerged like a Phoenix in the midweek when it mattered the most.
After a run of turbulent weeks due to various on and off-field reasons, United’s one of the most sought-after prospects earned a start in the UEFA Champions League against RB Leipzig this midweek.
He broke the deadlock for Manchester United against the German counterpart and gave United a comfortable notch.
Greenwood’s unpredictable shooting range makes him a special player. There’s a slight chance Dan James might start ahead of Greenwood – but the 18-year-old is a major threat been coming off the bench.
#2 Bruno Fernandes
Manchester United rely in their midfield magnifico for that extra spark of creativity. Having played only 406 minutes in the Premier League this season, Fernandes recorded three goals and two assists.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer restrained himself from fielding the 26-year-old against Leipzig last Wednesday, meaning Fernandes will supposedly start.
While coming off the bench, Fernandes was one of United’s best performers in the midweek.
Fernandes will be the creator-in-chief for the Red Devils tomorrow and his risk-taking appetite could cost Arsenal three points.
#1 Marcus Rashford
Rashford is in a red hot form. Coming from the bench against Leipzig around the hour mark, he ran riots. He racked up his first professional hat-trick for United.
On Sunday, Rashford might find himself getting a start in a forward-line of two strikers, where Greenwood would be playing from the right and sometimes from the centre of the pitch and Rashford would be running at the defenders from left with Fernandes feeding them with his deliveries or making runs just like an inverted ‘False 9’.
Rashford scored seven goals from nine appearances across all competitions this season. It seems as if Rashford’s tractor has found its mobility of late and wouldn’t stop grinding sooner than later.
