Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Feels Romelu Lukaku And Marcus Rashford Could Form A Deadly Combination

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United can be benefitted by the partnership between Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford.

Rashford is being viewed as United’s future number nine as the 21 year old has been preferred over Lukaku since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came in. both the players were central as United pulled off one of the greatest comebacks against Paris Saint Germain to make their way to the quarters.

Lukaku netted a brace while Rashford netted the winner to round off a brilliant evening in Paris. Lukaku has been tested in a wider role by the interim manager and the Belgian forward passed with flying colours as his hold up quality and acute crossing has been a treat to the eyes.

With Anthony Martial also returning for the big clash against Arsenal it remains to be seen how the manager decides to sue his attacking resources.

Solskjaer said, “I don’t think a lot has changed [with Romelu],

“Of course, he’s been asked to play wide a few times earlier on and provide more chances, but now he’s more in and around the box. We need Rom facing the goal, not with his back to goal.

“Of course we played with two up front, with him and Rashy against PSG. They might form a very nice partnership together, because I wouldn’t like to be a defender having them two running at me!”
