- Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford have been jostling for place in the Manchester United XI
- Although Rashford has started more games, Mourinho talks about how Martial edges the younger English forward
- The Frenchman came off the bench to score the winner against Spurs on Saturday
Manchester gaffer Jose Mourinho has been in a dilemma this season picking between Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford to start in the left-wing position this season.
But now the Manchester United manager has revealed one player has a key attribute over the other.
19-year-old English striker Rashford has been preferred in the Premier League while his 21-year-old French team-mate has been a regular starter in the Champions League.
On Saturday, October 28, the French international came off the bench once again to score as he netted the winner in the Red Devils' 1-0 win over Spurs.
Revealing what Mourinho said to him before coming on, Martial told Sky Sports : "The manager told me to find the space. I know Lukaku is good with his head. I found the space and I scored so I'm happy."
Mourinho then expanded on this at full-time and also revealed the one attribute Martial has over positional rival Rashford.
"I was telling him to do that but at the same time to play from Lukaku, against three very good central defenders, but three central defenders who had a hard match for 60, 70 minutes against Lukaku and Rashford.
"So he comes, okay, probably a lucky shot, but the movement is good, the desire is good, and the goal is the goal that give us two more points than the 0-0."
