Rashford was given responsibility for Fernandes against Bournemouth
Rashford took responsibility for Fernandes over the weekend against Bournemouth and scored to claim his 20th goal of the season, but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that both players will continue to take penalties.
“It will be a job they will share again,” said Solskjaer. “It’s the one who feels confident there and then. You saw Bruno score against Tottenham. I think Marcus would take the next one against Tottenham, but we got the VAR call that it wasn’t a penalty.
“I’m confident in both. Do not worry. They have to make the decision there and that’s exactly how we’ll leave it. ‘
