Is Everyone Missing A Trick With Marcus Rashford?

Gareth Southgate had a few interesting thoughts on Marcus Rashford after England’s 4-0 defeat of Bulgaria. The manager admitted that he had, like so many others, almost willed the player to develop as a number nine since the then-teenager burst onto the scene in 2016.

The early success of James emphasises Manchester United's decline

Daniel James has been a rare bright spot for Manchester United at the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign. The Welsh international was a surprise addition for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side over the summer, for a fee of £15 million.
