Anthony Martial has spoken of his keenness to share responsibility with Marcus Rashford as the pair’s relationship starts to blossom.

The duo have netted twice each in United’s opening Premier League games, with Rashford scoring a brace against Chelsea and Martial converting once in each game against the Blues and Wolves.

The Frenchman has struggled to nail down a regular place in the starting XI over the past few seasons, but he now seems more motivated both on the training pitch and on matchday.

“At training, we [Martial and Rashford] have this competition between us about scoring goals,” Martial told Sky Sports. ‘We measure who does the best finishing and who scores the most.

“Who’s winning? Well, that depends… Sometimes it’s him, sometimes it’s me. In games, Marcus likes to play in the middle, like me. I don’t mind dropping off, dropping out, we interchange during games.

“It doesn’t bother me to let him take the lead occasionally. It helps us to terrorise opposition defences and I hope we can keep it up over the course of the season.”
