CRISTIANO RONALDO and Marcus Rashford are ‘unchangeable’ at Manchester United.
That’s according to club legend Dwight Yorke.
New coach Ralf Rangnick started both men in his first game – a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.
And Yorke says the club’s best players should ‘never rest’.
He told Strong: “The rankings don’t lie.
“Some of the best players should not be rested. You start your best players, whether you’re on a schoolboy team or a Premier League team.
“Don’t complicate it, let’s start Cristiano Ronaldo.
“United would be in an even worse position without him. He’s 36 years old but he’s an oddball. He doesn’t look like an ordinary 36-year-old.

“Marcus Rashford is an outstanding talent. I watched him closely during practice – he was quick, dexterous and knew how to score.
“It’s hard to resist those three qualities.
“Believe me, defenders hate playing against me because they don’t know what’s coming – apart from Roberto Carlos, the best man I’ve played against.
“It’s the same with Rashford. He has the ‘wow’ factor.
“He’s a United fan, he’s from Manchester.
“His combination of talent and background is invaluable. He’s not great physically but he can improve.”
Yorke was also fed up with criticism of United’s midfield with many suggesting that Fred and Scott McTominay weren’t good enough to help the club challenge for the title.
He added: “There is another thing. The players know who’s the best on the team – they’re not stupid.
“There is a rank in every dressing room and there always will be. But the selected players also did not perform as well as they should.
“I don’t like criticism of midfield, with people saying they are not world class.
“Does United not have enough world-class players to win more games?

“Is Darren Fletcher world class? John O’Shea? Nicky Butt? Phil Neville?
“No, they’ve risen with world-class players around them and become very important players for United.
“Leicester had a team of world-class players when they won the league? Is not. United’s current side will face many challenges for the title. “
