That is the view of former Manchester United defender-became-pundit Phil Neville.
Both Rashford and Martial were vying for the left-wing place this season, with Romelu Lukaku spearheading the assault.
The duo have loved and bold begin to the season, weighing in with 9 objectives between them already in all competitions
Jose Mourinho has interchanged between Marcus Rashford and Martial up to now and each of them scored within the four-1 win over Burton Albion within the Carabao Cup at Old Trafford.
But Neville reckons if Mourinho needed to pick between the 2 for the left-wing spot at Manchester United, he would pick Rashford.
When requested who he would pick between Rashford and Martial, Neville instructed Sky Sports’ The Debate: “Yeah I feel he’s ahead of Martial.
“If you had been choosing United’s easiest beginning XI, at this second in time Rashford performs at the left.
“Martial is doing smartly, he’s advanced, he’s handiest 21 and it’s a excellent fight.
“I feel what’s came about this 12 months they’re in reality spurring each and every different on.”
Up subsequent for United is a Premier League conflict with Southampton at St Mary’s on Saturday (3pm).
A win right here would see United deal with their unbeaten begin to the season and consolidate their position on the best of the desk.
