​​​​​​​With Zlatan Ibrahimovic suspended for Manchester Uniteds clash with Arsenal, Jose Mourinho faces a selection dilemma up front. Cheap New Balance Shoes China . The stats suggest its time to unleash Marcus Rashford through the middle. Arsenals visit to Old Trafford on Saturday stirs special memories for Marcus Rashford. The teenager scored twice in three minutes when he made his Premier League debut in the same fixture last season, helping Manchester United to a memorable 3-2 win and catapulting his name into the headlines.Three days earlier he had netted two goals on his senior bow against Midtjylland, but doing it against a Premier League title contender was a different story. Rashford became a superstar-in-waiting, and the previously unknown youngster finished the season as Louis van Gaals first-choice striker with eight goals in 18 appearances. Nine months on from those thrilling beginnings, Rashford finds himself in a rather different situation. Jose Mourinho made a point of defending his youth policy at his Manchester United unveiling in July, but the critics appeared to be vindicated as Zlatan Ibrahimovic took centre stage and Uniteds rising star started the season on the bench. Marcus Rashford scored twice against Arsenal last season Rashford had to be patient, but he has made a habit of taking his chances. He came off the bench to score a stoppage-time winner against Hull in his first competitive appearance under Mourinho in August, and he won his new managers trust with an industrious second-half cameo in the Manchester derby.Rashford was rewarded with a chance to lead the line for Uniteds Europa League trip to Feyenoord a few days later, but he struggled to make an impact in a 1-0 defeat at De Kuip. Ibrahimovic was restored up front, and Rashford has been confined to the flanks ever since.Its an unfamiliar role for the academy product. Rashford revealed he had not played as a winger since the age of 12 or 13 in an interview with Sky Sports in September, and he was clear about his priorities, too. On a personal level, scoring lots of goals is the main objective, he said. Marcus Rashford struck a dramatic winner against Hull in August Four goals in his first six appearances of the campaign augured well, but Rashford has struggled to hit the heights of last season since then. He has not scored in his last seven appearances for United. The barren run stretches to 10 games for club and country. Its the longest of his fledgling career.Rashford hopes the experience of playing out wide will make him a more complete player and Mourinho has been impressed by his defensive work-rate, but his new responsibilities are clearly coming at a cost. A statistical comparison between this season and last reveals his attacking output has dropped in all departments. Marcus Rashford 2015/16 vs 2016/17 Stat 2015/16 2016/17 Games played 18 14 Goals scored 8 4 Assists 2 1 Shots per game 2.0 1.5 Shots on target per game 0.8 0.4 Chances created per game 0.7 0.6 Dribbles attempted per game 4.7 3.3 Dribbles completed per game 1.6 1.0 Touches in opposition box per game 6.5 6.1 Rashford is a penalty box predator who scored with his first shots on his Europa League, Premier League and international debuts. But since moving to the flanks he is shooting less and spending less time in the areas where he is most effective. In Uniteds goalless draw at Anfield last month, he didnt touch the ball once in Liverpools box. Six months half price Upgrade to Sky Sports to watch Man Utd v Arsenal on Saturday and get the first six months half price Its not just his goal threat which has been diminished. Rashford is creating fewer chances than last season, his dribbles have fallen from 4.7 per game to 3.3, and his crossing stats are those of a striker shoehorned into an unnatural position. Of 25 attempted deliveries, only two have found a team-mate. It gives him a success rate of just eight per cent. Marcus Rashfords heatmap in Manchester Uniteds 0-0 draw with Liverpool Despite the obvious drawbacks of moving Rashford from his favoured position, Mourinhos faith in Ibrahimovic has been unwavering. The Swede went six Premier League games without scoring before his double against Swansea prior to the international break, but he is still the only outfield player to have started every minute of Uniteds campaign.Rashford, of course, is not the only player in the frame to deputise against Arsenal. Wayne Rooney has lost his place in the United team this season, but he could get the nod to start up front on Saturday having recovered from the apparent knee injury which forced him out of England duty. Importance of Carrick The details behind why Michael Carricks return can be the catalyst for Manchester United. Mourinho might be tempted to err on the side of experience when he comes to pick his team, but he would be better off casting his mind back to the last time Arsenal visited Old Trafford. Rashford was the hero that day. Moving him back into his natural position could be Uniteds best hope of claiming another three points against the Gunners.

Artturi Lehkonen, Joni Nikko and Ville Leskinen had the other goals for Finland (1-0) while Juuse Saros stopped 28 shots. Tim Robin Johnsgard had the lone goal for Norway (0-2). BRISTOL, Tenn. -- Ben Kennedy, the great-grandson of NASCAR founder Bill France Sr., earned his first career NASCAR national series victory by capturing the Camping World Truck Series race on Wednesday night at Bristol Motor Speedway.Considered a possible future leader of NASCAR as the son of current NASCAR vice chairwoman Lesa France Kennedy and nephew of NASCAR chairman Brian France, the 2014 University of Florida graduate has continued to focus on the competition side than any administrative side of NASCAR.The unpretentious and well-respected 24-year-old was the first France family member to win a NASCAR national series race -- it coming in his 63rd career start in the series -- by leading the final 20 laps of the UNOH 200.If anything, at the end of the day, this is a good experience for me no matter what I end up doing, Kennedy said. Hopefully, I have a long career in the racing industry, and if I dont, I at least have cool things to look back on and experiences.This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that you couldnt trade for the world.Kennedy has driven for four different teams in the trucks since 2013. He had seven top-five finishes and 21 top-10s, with a previous career best of third. He entered the race ninth in the series standings -- the same spot he finished in his first two years in the series.But he should finish higher in 20116, as the win should qualify him and the GMS Racing team for the eight-driver truck series version of NASCARs Chase. Cheap Vans Shoes China. If anything, its a little bit of validity for me and just confidence, not only for me but the entire team, Kennedy said. It makes it valid that were contenders here and should be here.?Kennedy outlasted Brett Moffitt to the finish line after a late caution set up a six-lap dash to the finish on the 0.533-mile high-banked concrete oval. Moffitt, ironically, was driving the Red Horse Racing No. 11 car that Kennedy drove for the first three races this year before moving over to GMS.Moffitt said despite Kennedys lineage (and the fact they are neighbors), he would have moved Kennedy for the win if he could have gotten to his bumper.Im going to race people the way I want to be raced, said Moffitt, the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Rookie of the Year. It is Bristol, so if you need to move someone, youve got to move him. I just wasnt quite good enough through the center to get to him.He slipped up a few times, and I was able to get to his bumper once, but I didnt get to him hard enough. I was really waiting for him to make a mistake so I could shove my nose in there, but he executed when he needed to. ' ' '
