Alan Shearer names the Manchester United duo under huge pressure to perform this season

Alan Shearer says Manchester United’s failure to replace Romelu Lukaku means Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are under huge pressure to perform this season. Lukaku completed a £74million move to Inter Milan on deadline day. The Reds opted against signing another forward. "That has put big pressure on Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial to perform this season - and it's important they avoid any long-term injuries," Shearer wrote in The Sun. He added: "Martial and Rashford both have to step up. However, in Ole they have a manager who knows their position as well as anyone - and he can pass on all of his experience and expertise. If he can get an extra ten per cent out of them both, that might just be enough - but it is still a gamble."
