Manchester United Football Club reaped the rewards of their excellent end to the season by earning a spot in the Champions League. Our best player post-lockdown? Anthony Martial. The French striker has been rewarded. Yep, a Martial TOTS appearance happened… Cheers, WhoScored!

Twenty-two goals and eleven assists represents Anthony Martial’s best season in Manchester United colours by far. An Ole Gunnar Solskjaer arm around the shoulder coupled with consistent minutes as the lead striker worked wonders.

Over the course of the campaign, Martial went from strength-to-strength. He greatly improved with his back to goal as a hold-up man, while his passing and interplay with the likes of Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes was out of this world at times.

His surreal campaign has rewarded Martial with a spot in WhoScored’s Team of the Season for 2019/20; the only United player to force their way in…

Anthony Martial TOTS inclusion 2019/20

A 7.31 rating over a 38-game season is nothing to be sniffed at. In fact, the Frenchman was the highes-rated striker, beating out Raul Jimenez, Jamie Vardy and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

So what next for Toto?

Now for Martial, it’s about taking his game to that next level. During his debut term, he was being talked up as a future Ballon d’Or winner. He’s still just 24 with plenty of room for further development. Who knows, that Ballon d’Or dream may still come true…

Now, it’s about Martial resting up for a couple of weeks before the Europa League starts up again in August. We’re going to need his goals, assists and all-round hold-up play if we’re to lift that trophy aloft at the season’s end. I certainly wouldn’t bet against Martial firing us to glory…

Was a Martial TOTS appearance justified or was his early-season form too inconsistent? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
