Manchester United have a new front-three and the fans are all here for it.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer finally introduced Mason Greenwood into his Premier League starting line-up. The youngster was finally given a solid start to his senior career after Daniel James was dropped against Newcastle United this week.
And the Englishman made an instant impact, scoring his third Premier League goal against the Magpies. Moreover, with Anthony Martial leading the line and Marcus Rashford on the left flank, United’s attack looks much more fluid and potent.
Which was clearly visible as the Red Devils sailed past Newcastle with a 4-1 scoreline. Rashford also bagged a goal whilst Martial continued his good form with a brace.
It is highly probable that the new found flair in the front-three is the result of the inclusion of Greenwood. With 8 goals and 3 assists, the academy graduate seems to have always been destined for the top level.
And who else would’ve reacted to the new dynamic front-three better than United fans?
Lord give us a coach that can improve Rashford, Greenwood & Martial.

Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood all scoring today. This should be our front three for the foreseeable future pic.twitter.com/U95abseBl8

The Old Trafford crowd seem to be wanting more of this trio. But that would mean the restriction of James’ game-time. The Welshman had a solid start to his career in England but has since displayed a cooled down form. The winger hasn’t scored since August, which may have been why he was given a bench role this week.
Although supporters seem to love the former Swansea City starlet, the prospect of playing a deadly 18-year-old seem to interest them more.
433 with Greenwood and Rashford either side of Martial is literally the way to go if Sancho is unattainable. Maybe Chukwueze as a rotating option because we do need depth in attack. Lingard and James aren't enough. Chong needs a loan.

The Mancunians travel to Burnley on Sunday and it’s yet unknown if the teenager would keep his place over the Welsh international. Surely Solskjaer wouldn’t want to disappoint the fans.
