Manchester United have moved up to seventh place in the Premier League table, with the Red Devils beating Norwich City 3-1 this afternoon.
It’s no coincidence that our performance level dramatically increased when Anthony Martial returns to the fold. The Frenchman just brings another dimension to an otherwise toothless attack – and today was no different.
He took his goal wonderfully well, while his hold-up play has certainly improved over the last few months, which has always been the knock on his game.
Martial just looks so much more at home leading the line as the main striker, while it also benefits Marcus Rashford endlessly too. It certainly seems like a win-win for all involved.
Now it’s about pushing on from here and really kicking on. There’s no doubt that Martial could be the 20+ goal-a-season striker that we’ve craved for so long, though he’ll have to remain off the treatment table for that to happen.
After the result, the fans took to Twitter in masses to praise the 23-year-old following a quality display – with one fan calling him a ‘special player’ while another said the Frenchman is ‘lightyears’ ahead of anyone else in the squad. To be honest, I find it hard to argue with that right now…
