Phil Neville believes Jose Mourinho will wait until Manchester United are playing at their best before starting Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku in the same team.

The Red Devils suffered a surprise 2-1 loss to promoted side Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium last weekend to raise serious questions about their title credentials.

Manchester United have failed to win their last two Premier League games following a goalless draw with rivals Liverpool before a shock defeat at the Terriers in October so far.

Mourinho has resisted the temptation to start Lukaku, Martial and Rashford in the same attack despite the obvious qualities the trio bring to the Manchester United team.

Former Manchester United defender Neville expects Mourinho to wait until his Red Devils team is in full flow before opting to give the trio the chance to impress as an attacking unit.

“Eventually he will have to go with Rashford on the right and Martial on the left. Rashford has to start. So does Lukaku,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“There will become a time when he has to play all three. That will be when Man United are playing at their best and more confident.”

Manchester United have scored 22 goals in their opening nine games in the Premier League.

The Red Devils will make the long trip to Tottenham Hotspur in their next Premier League fixture at Old Trafford on Saturday.
