Neville names the three players who’ll have the biggest impact on United’s season

Date Posted,August 7, 2017

Gary Neville believes Manchester United trio Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku will define the club’s season.

The former Red Devils right-back, who believes United finally look more like a Jose Mourinho team, is looking at the three attackers to provide many goals this season.

Last campaign the Old Trafford club relied heavily on Zlatan Ibrahimovic to win them games, but are now required to do the business without the Swedish forward.

Mourinho splashed the cash on Lukaku to fill this huge void up front, and Neville is confident that the Belgium, alongside Rashford and Martial, can make the difference.

“I think last season there was a movement away from how the team played under Louis van Gaal’s side and I think it will become more of a Mourinho side, Neville told Sky Sports.

“You can see more of what he has normally done before with Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku coming in, making sure that the spine of the team is really powerful and strong and has that physicality to deal with the Premier League season.

“So I think they’re in a real good position, the squad looks strong and I think how Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Lukaku play will determine what happens.”

Manchester United are in action against Real Madrid in the Super Cup on Tuesday night.

Mourinho will be keen to kick-start United’s campaign with a win against the team he used to manage at the Philip II Arena in Skopje.
