Paul Scholes believes Manchester United have a lethal four-man attack that “nobody can handle” in Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes.
United saw their 10-game winning run away from home come to an end at Leicester on Boxing Day, with Axel Tuanzebe’s late own goal earning the hosts a 2-2 draw.
Rashford had fired them in front early on, before Harvey Barnes brought Brendan Rodgers’ men level shortly after.
Fernandes then looked like extending the visitors’ away win streak by slotting the ball home 11 minutes from time, only for Jamie Vardy’s late effort to deflect off Tuanzebe and hit the back of the net.
United are in a rich vein of form in front of goal right now, scoring 11 times in their last three games.
But Scholes insists his former club’s strongest attacking line-up also includes Greenwood, who was an unused substitute in the Boxing Day draw with Leicester.
After claiming Ole Gunnar Solskjaer left his best players out at the King Power, the ex-United midfielder said on BT Sport: “Leaving the best players out, I wasn’t really including [Edinson] Cavani in that.
“I know he’s a top centre-forward but he’s coming to the end of his career now.
“I was thinking more Mason Greenwood. I know he didn’t come into the game today, but I think when those three start together, Greenwood, Martial, Rashford with Fernandes in behind, I don’t think anybody can handle that. I think it’s too good.
“It’s great to have Cavani coming on as an option, as he did, and there will be some games he can play.
“I said before about the 12, 13, 14 players United need to have fit to maintain a challenge, that’s still right.
“But they will have games where this players will come in, like Dan James did against Leeds last week, like Cavani can do in spells as well.
