Erik ten Hag gives verdict on whether these two Manchester United strikers can play together

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag believes strikers Rasmus Hojlund and Anthony Martial can play together.

United have struggled for form this season, with a goal difference of -2 in the Premier League, which has led to criticisms of lack of attacking firepower.

So far, either Hojlund or Martial, have always led the attacking line with goals still a problem, coupled with the loss of form of both Rashford and Antony.

Erik ten Hag was asked in his pre-match press conference ahead of the Champions League clash with Copenhagen, whether Rasmus Hojlund and Anthony Martial could play together.

He said he believes they can, commenting: “It’s possible, they can play together, so far we haven’t done this in games, but I can see they can play together because Anthony Martial can play from the side.”
