With Rashford regaining full fitness, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer now has a lot of attacking options at his disposal.

In this article, we'll be taking a look at different ways the Norwegian tactician could explore in setting up his front three. Let's have a look:

Option A

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer seems to be a fan of the 4-2-3-1 formation as that's what he has used most this season.

Marcus Rashford has incredible space and good dribbling skills, as such, he could occupy the left-wing-forward position.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Mason Greenwood could keep their places as the sole striker and right-wing-forward respectively.

In this case, Bruno Fernandes could play behind the striker as an attacking midfielder.

Here's an illustration of Option A below:

Option B

Another way Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could line up with Rashford is to play him as a right-winger in a 4-3-3 or 3-4-3 formation.

In this case, Edinson Cavani and Jadon Sancho could occupy the other two positions up front.

Option C

Another option available for the Red Devils is to play Marcus Rashford as a central forward.

Though that's not the English youngster's natural position, he has played in that position sometimes and he performed well.

With Rashford playing as a center-forward, Cristiano Ronaldo could be moved to the left wing with Mason Greenwood retaining his place on the right wing.
