Jose Mourinho has confirmed Anthony Martial is unavailable for Manchester United’s game against Leicester City on Saturday so we asked our followers on Twitter who they’d like to see start in his place.
Here’s what fans had to say:

@PeoplesPerson_ Has to be Rashford, only one with some confidence to get a goal

@PeoplesPerson_ 433 with Memphis on left. Wanna see how Pogba combines with him.

@PeoplesPerson_ I would start Rashford on the left and Mkhitaryan on the right with a midfield 3 of Herrera,Pogba and Fellaini

@PeoplesPerson_ Rashford. Jesse or Micki on the right.

I’ve got to agree with the majority. Danny Simpson is going to be Leicester’s weak point at Old Trafford and we’ve got to do our best to expose that, so playing Rashford in that position will certainly give us the best opportunity to do that.
It also means Zlatan Ibrahimovic can play up front which is what Mourinho will want but there are still questions as to who will play on the right-wing as we don’t know whether Henrikh Mkhitaryan is available either.
Rashford’s been such an impact player for United off the bench this season but it’s about time Mourinho gave him centre stage in a game he’s suited to in order to get the best out of him – Leicester is the perfect opportunity to do that.
