Man United have proven to the whole world that position changing is absolutely easier than ever, using Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial as an example.
From all fifteen (15) matches played by Manchester United, Edinson Cavani has become the fourth player to start up front for the club this season in the win over Istanbul Basaksehir.

There is no doubt that Cavani has the best goal scoring record if compared to any of his teammates over his illustrious career, and his performance showed he has still got it.
The Uruguayan starting up-front works well for United, and the way Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford worked on either side of him was the reason Cavani became so effective at the front line.
The match against Istanbul Basaksehir saw Martial playing out on the left wing for a first time in more than a year. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
Also in the match, Rashford was made to play on the right wing, a role he has played in before, although rarely recently.
Both Rashford and Martial responded to their positional shift with a full efficacy by adapting to their new roles so quickly. They both put their arms around the challenge and provided an attacking threat. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
Bruno Fernandes with the No. 18 on his back is usually playing the Number 10 role, Rashford with the No. 10 on his shirt switched from No. 11 role to the no. 7 role and Martial playing the number 9 role was switched to play the no. 11 role (his former number), which eventually sees Cavani playing the no. 9 role with 7 on his back.

The question here is whether Martial is better as a striker or a left-winger. Though, Many believe it is the latter, and the centre-forward should be left for Edinson Cavani.
It is really encouraging for Solskjaer to see his players adapting to each and every change he made. And the club may now have a new first choice front-three. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
