Manchester United's Rashford, Martial have no 'divine right' to start - Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer File

'You need competition for places at Manchester United, ' the manager said.

Solskjaer's decision to sell Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan last summer and put his faith in Rashford and Martial was questioned by some supporters, but the pair have repaid the Norwegian and should ensure two forwards pass 20 goals in all competitions in the same season for the first time since Dimitar Berbatov and Javier Hernandez achieved the feat in 2010-11. However, Timo Werner will be joining The Blues this summer and they already have plenty of other attacking options too, so there'd be no guarantees for Gomes to play regularly if he did make a move to Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United are now unbeaten in 14 games in all competitions and have shown promising signs of improvement either side of the season's suspension, the club having impressed since the Premier League's restart, securing a comfortable 3-0 victory over Sheffield United in their last league fixture.

"I think all three that we have talked about have had a good development this season - but they can be so much better".

But according to Dwight Yorke, his former side could take two or three more years before they are finally ready to compete for the domestic title. And if they don't improve, well, we might have to look somewhere else to get better because we have to be better.

'Complacency kicks you somewhere you don't want to get kicked in football'. "I'm still waiting to see them blossom because there are parts of their game that they still need to improve on".

"He came on and looked sharp again against Norwich, against Sheffield United he missed one or two chances but the goals he created I think is what we're focusing on".

'I would never ever say it's an easy game in the Premier League, absolutely no chance, ' added the United boss.

"We just have to focus on one game at a time, win this one so we can go into the next one feeling more confident".

"Of course, we all want the fans in the stadiums but at least now you can sit back and watch some exciting and important games".

"I've not heard from him last night or this morning so it seems like they haven't managed to agree anything.The answer is probably short - yes", Solskjaer said, when asked if Gomes would be leaving Old Trafford. "If he signs for us, let's kick on".
