Manchester United forward Anthony Martial keen to continue good form against Chelsea

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial keen to continue good form against Chelsea

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial is hoping his positive start to the season will continue when they face Chelsea, live on Nissan Super Sunday.

The 21-year-old has scored six times in 15 appearances for Jose Mourinho’s side having managed just nine in the whole of their last campaign and that form has earned him a first France call-up in over a year.

But despite some impressive performances for United, Martial remains self-critical in his desire to improve his game.

“At the moment, I’m happy, even if I could have done more, scored more goals and made more decisive passes,” he told MUTV.

“I think the difference is that last year I didn’t have a good season but, for now, things are going pretty well.

“I’m achieving my objectives and I hope to score a lot more by the end of the season.

“I must continue to keep up good performances for my club and if I’ve got the chance to start over there [for France) I will do the best I can.”

Mourinho has tended to rotate between Martial and England forward Marcus Rashford as his left-sided attacker, with the decision to replace England international Rashford with Martial during the 1-0 win over Tottenham last weekend greeted with boos by some inside Old Trafford.

Martial went on to score the winner, although he could find himself back on the bench for the trip to Stamford Bridge, something he insists he is content with if that is what is required of him by his manager.

“I think when I come on to the pitch as a sub, I’m hungry, desperate to play,” he added.

“I want to get some action, to score, to make some key passes, I want to give everything I can to help the team.”
