Paul Parker has accused Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial of not wanting to work hard at Manchester United.
Rashford has started just three times for United in the Premier League this season after missing the first seven games through shoulder injury.
Two of the winger’s starts came in United’s last two league games which saw them suffer a humiliating 4-1 defeat to Watford before nicking a point against Chelsea in a 1-1 draw on Sunday.

Now Parker believes starlet Mason Greenwood should start ahead of the England international.
Meanwhile, Martial has also struggled for game time this term, starting just twice in United’s opening 12 league games and playing a a mere total of 67 minutes in the Champions League.
Former United defender Parker claimed the Frenchman needs to put in more of an effort at Old Trafford alongside Rashford.

‘You’ve got a young Mason Greenwood, being a young lad you wonder where he head is at,’ he told Talk Of The Devils.
‘He was a key player a few weeks back, getting a good rapport at the back end of last season with Cavani and you could see Ronaldo was respecting what he was trying to achieve.
‘I would play Greenwood in front of Rashford all day long. I’m just thinking why Rashford gets so much game time.
‘You’re looking at it and there is nothing coming out of it to be perfectly honest. How does Martial get the game time in Villarreal, I really don’t know. It seems strange.

‘Okay, if you have a bad game you have a bad game. But when you see players who don’t want to work hard that is when questions need to be asked and Martial doesn’t want to work hard. Rashford doesn’t want to work hard. He doesn’t really want to.’
United have won just one of their last seven games and the poor run led to the dismissal of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the defeat to Watford.
The Red Devils secured a draw away to league leaders Chelsea on Sunday and welcome fifth-placed Arsenal to Old Trafford on Thursday.
