Manchester United fans were definitely frustrated with Anthony Martial after he put in a toothless performance vs Brighton.
Given a rare opportunity to start the Frenchman failed to convince his manager that he’s deserving of more match time in the future.
Martial’s own future is up in the air and wouldn’t have been helped by the display against the Premier League newcomers.
Juventus and Bayern are said to be lining up a bid for him despite Jose Mourinho insisting that there’s no desire to sell anyone.
Anthony though will surely want to put the performance behind him and hope his manager will give him another opportunity to succeed.
Martial and Rashford fan boys have been silenced today, they’re both as bad as each other, they’re both not first team standard. Reality.

I reckon I have more chance of playing in the FA Cup Final than Martial …..

Lots of players facing the end at United this summer. Martial likely to be one of them. He could be another Mo Salah for Mourinho, but I wouldn’t bet on that…

Much has been made of Anthony Martial‘s desire to play as a centre-forward but he’s hardly shown any hunger or desire to prove he’s worth it.
The former Monaco man isn’t typically the type of striker Mourinho searches for either way and so his future is more likely to be on the left wing.
The Portuguese boss loves a physical forward who’s capable of holding up the ball and finding his teammates but unfortunately Martial’s qualities are his pace, finishing and dribbling abilities that suit the wide role.
