Ander Herrera has named Anthony Martial as the fastest player he has played with.

Martial arrived at Manchester United for a fee of around £36m on transfer deadline day, in a hectic week which also saw the player make his international debut for France at just 19 years old.

The youngster has made a fine start to life at Old Trafford, scoring on his debut against Liverpool and contributing a further four goals in all competitions this season.

As well as being deadly in front of goal, Martial has been praised for his speed too, with Herrera labelling his new teammate as the fastest player he has played with.

Supporters have also been impressed with Martial’s dribbling, with the player more than capable of combining skill with pace, as he has shown in a number of games so far this year.

The youngster manages to glide through defences with a confidence that belies his years, and has injected some much needed ruthlessness and pace into a Man United squad which looked languid before his arrival. Such qualities will be crucial over the course of United’s season, with Louis van Gaal intent on challenging for multiple honours in his second term as manager.
