Rashford has shown how effective he can be even without scoring - he is rarely a passenger in any United attack - while Martial is finding a position that suits him. More importantly for Solskjaer, the Frenchman is putting a shift in.
He told Sky Sports: "I've been very pleased with Anthony. You can see his work rate, his foundation. There were some stats last season on our strikers, and he's really taken up the challenge and answered the questions I asked of work rate. We have to start from the front with our pressing, and he's really taken that on board.
"Marcus is still a young boy developing, too. All three of them can see a pass, can play a pass, they can score, they are physical, they can make runs and create chances for others. We are trying to develop them all of the time; this isn't a one-day thing, or a 'sometimes' thing, this is about creating good habits."
