Manchester United fans want Anthony Martial to start on the left wing ahead of Alexis Sanchez against Brighton next weekend. The Frenchman was an unused substitute in Friday's win against Leicester at Old Trafford, with Mourinho opting for not having taken him to the final stages of the meeting. Sanchez lasted all 90 minutes of United's 2-1 victory, but his performance was subdued and, in a survey conducted by MEN, 61% of fans said they wanted to see Martial on the team for their visit to Amex next weekend. Only 32% of the 2,963 voters say they want Sanchez to maintain their place on the left flank, while 6% say they want Marcus Rashford to play in that position. After the game against Leicester, Mourinho said he wanted to bring Martial, but he was not able to do it because a number of starters in different positions towards the wing was tiring and needed to come out.

"I do not remember in my career to be so much in trouble to make changes, because I want to make five or six and I have only three," said Mourinho. "I've had players in trouble, I need to make changes, I want to make tactical changes that I do not because I'm afraid of how the players would react." I wanted to play Martial and in a certain minute, a certain moment of the game, it was perfect to extend the game to the bench and I was afraid to play because I knew that Paul could not resist for 90 and Fred would be in trouble.
