Fernandes said Rashford, Sancho and Martial are really aggressive in pressing.
The Portugal international said this after Man United’s 3-1 win over Crystal Palace in a pre-season friendly tie on Tuesday.

“The three guys up front [Sancho, Rashford, and Martial] are really aggressive in the press,” Fernandes said.
