Ian Wright claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must drop Anthony Martial in favour of Mason Greenwood to get the best out of Bruno Fernandes.

Fernandes made his Manchester United debut in the 0-0 Premier League draw with Wolves at Old Trafford on Saturday, after completing a £67.8million move from Sporting.

The Portugal international had the most shots and completed the most passes out of every player on the pitch.

But Wright believes Fernandes needs a better forward than Martial ahead of him – who once more led the line seemingly under the impression that he was doing everyone a favour.

“You look at those stats, I’ve seen the same with Pogba and it looks it might happen the same with him,” Wright told Match of the Day.

“He needs something in front of him. He needs someone to run onto things.



“If [United] are going to carry on playing like that he’s going to slip into that ordinary kind of category as well unfortunately.

“Absolutely [I would play Greenwood]. When you look at how Martial’s played in that game I’d play [Greenwood].”
