Man Utd boss Solskjaer: Martial and Fernandes combination can flourish

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sees the combination between Bruno Fernandes and Anthony Martial as key to a successful season finish.

Fernandes has so far netted three goals for his new club, and Solskjaer is delighted with the way he's linked up with Martial.

"Tony and Bruno have hit it off together so it's a partnership that we hope can flourish," he said.

"We knew he was a quality player and knew that when he came in he would have an impact straight away but you never know if he's going to settle early in a new country but he's taken to it like a duck to water."

Martial's tally of 16 goals in all competitions for United in 2019/20 is only one fewer than his best ever return in a full campaign for the club, and his best total since the 17 he scored under Louis van Gaal in his first season in 2015/16.
