Jose Mourinho Is Confused Over Whom To Bench In United Attack

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho claims he is spoilt for choice with his current attacking options going by the current performance of his forwards .

Mirror Sport reports that the former Chelsea boss says “none of his forward players deserves to be left out of Saturday’s side to face Southampton, after United’s explosive start to the new season.

Anthony Martial pushed his claim for a regular starting place with a Man Of The Match display in Wednesday’s 4-1 Carabao Cup win over Championship visitors Burton.

The Frenchman is now set for only his second Premier League start this term, with Mourinho admitting the form of his frontmen, Marcus Rashford scored twice against Burton with £75m summer buy Romelu Lukaku rested, is giving him a selection headache.

“It’s hard for Anthony, but it’s hard for many others,” he said. “So many players are in good moments, playing well, so it’s hard for all of them.

“When I see the match last Wednesday, the attacking players – Martial, Rashford, Mata, Lingard – which one deserves to be on the bench against Southampton? No-one. Nobody deserves to be on the bench Mourinho concluded.
