Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial predict each other’s FIFA 17 ratings

Published Add your comment

Jose Mourinho has so much quality in attacking positions that he couldn’t find room in his starting line-up for either Anthony Martial or Marcus Rashford against Manchester City last weekend.

The versatile Manchester United forwards, who can play out wide or through the middle, both have extremely bright futures ahead of them - but how do they rate each other?

The two youngsters were asked to predict each other’s stats for the soon-to-be-released EA Sports game FIFA 17 and, to be fair, they were both relatively kind to one another.

Rashford conceded that Martial was a little quicker than he is, so handed him an 85 rating for pace.

The England international is no slouch himself and EA Sports have given them similar marks in the speed department.

Video: Martial and Rashford predict FIFA 17 stats

Martial is rated 91 for pace while Rashford is one point behind on 90.

Martial also guessed that Rashford would have 85 for pace, while the Frenchman handed his teammate a 79 rating for shooting. Rashford, meanwhile, handed Martial 82 for shooting.

Martial only has 79 for shooting in FIFA 17 - although that’s still better than Rashford’s 73.

Rashford predicted Martial would have 61 for passing (correct mark is 70) while the 18-year-old has 66 for the same attribute.

The funniest moment came when Rashford was asked to predict Martial’s defending rating.

“We’re both as bad as each other,” the starlet said, before handing the French forward a ’10’.

Martial was a little kinder with his guess of 65 for Rashford’s defending.

And for the overall rating?

“I’m convinced that next year his score will be better than the one I gave him today,” Martial said of Rashford, before handing him a 78.

Rashford gave Martial an overall rating of 84.
