Rashford, Hojlund and Garnacho - Power trio leading Manchester United revival

Even though this might been the umpteenth time, a Manchester United frontline being hyped up for performing well in a few matches only to falter away, this might be a false dawn or could very well be the real deal.

Their frontline faltering on the front line despite the enormous funds being poured into transfers. Recently it had made them nothing short of Ban-chester United for the opposition mocking their inability to score or play the football. But for the past few matches, the three horsemen of Old Trafford's hopes and dreams this season have been firing all cylinders. Let's take a dive into how these 3 Red Devils are apparently cooking.

After an incredibly slow start to the season to the point where his first season was declared  as a dud by most United fans , 7 consecutive goals  that too some of them being clutch have instilled a renewed sense of confidence in his abilities and so far vindicated the hefty transfer fees spent on him. 

His turnaround has somewhat been a spitting mirror image of United's season and they would only hope that he goes on from strength to strength as he clearly has all the taw tools to do so and has time on his side along with the backing of his manager Erik Ten Hag. 

The goal he scored against the Hammers, creating space at the edge of the box and drilling the ball into the bottom corner of the net, had an unflustered ruthless loom to it while his calm side-footed volley against Aston Villa indicative of his sharp predatory instincts inside the six-yard box.

Garnacho has been balling out and dishing out CR7 celebrations regularly  just like how his idol used to do on the left wing all those years ago but he would be happy to do it on the right if that means good results for United. 

The 19 year old is still too young to be burdened with the responsibility  of carrying United solely on his shoulders but would be happy to do so with his one on one takedown of player adding a sharp cutting direct edge to Manchester United's attack which had been toothless and blunt in recent times without any redeeming qualities.

Though he might not be having the best of individual seasons, his combination with Garnacho and Rasmus who have a combine age of 66 have proven to be a well oiled machine with Rashford now getting the chance to showcase hi signature celebration more often then he was getting to beforehand. 

And at 26, about to enter his prime, the signs do look good and he would be looking forward to prove his doubters wrong as well all know that Rashford is quality and undoubtedly the face of Manchester United. The turnaround is important for both United as well as his personal career finally finding his feet on the left wing instead of being forced to play as a striker with his qualities of dribbling and raw pace along with his tendency to drift put wide and cut inside.

In conclusion with all being said and done, the trio  as a front three from left to right Garnacho, Højlund and Rashford  have played seven times this season and have won all seven. Although United fans have their fingers crossed and would hope that this trio would finally be able solve at least their worries in the attacking department. They have been at the exact same crossroads one too many times to be over optimistic.
