Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand was unimpressed with the performance of forwards Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford against Sheffield United on Wednesday night.
Ferdinand believes the duo struggled to make any impact in the game and were largely invisible.
“They didn’t have that zip about them,” Ferdinand told BT Sport.
“From minute one, really, there wasn’t that cut and thrust from United where they’re cutting through teams. Credit again to Chris Wilder’s team, he set them up defensively very well.
“But Man United didn’t ask the questions. Bruno Fernandes, who they’ve relied on so heavily in recent months, didn’t get it going today. Paul Pogba the same.
“Rashford and Martial were invisible tonight really. Didn’t get on the end of anything, didn’t create anything.
“If anybody was starting to get carried away at Old Trafford in the position they’re in at the moment, the reality check was tonight.”
