Clip Of Anthony Martial Sums Up His Biggest Problem At Manchester United

Clip Of Anthony Martial Sums Up His Biggest Problem At Manchester United

Anthony Martial came under fire for being 'lazy' on Sunday, during Manchester United's win over Newcastle United, and one clip in particular summed up his problem.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team were far from their best on Sunday evening, as they went back into second place following Leicester City's win vs Aston Villa earlier in the day.

The hosts were without Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba, Scott McTominay and Donny van de Beek, and were lacking the dynamism that comes during their better performances.

Without Cavani there was a lack of movement up front, with out of form Martial leading the line, despite decent performances from Marcus Rashford and Daniel James on the wings.

Martial's performance was criticised for a perceived lack of effort and one clip went viral that showed James with the ball out wide having no one to cross into as the Frenchman jogged rather than ran into position.

Anthony Martial Asks Manchester United To Help With Security At His House After Racist Abuse

published at3 months ago

Martial, who has disgustingly been racially abused on social media following recent games, has not been at his best all season.

He was on form last year, especially after football's restart, scoring 23 goals in all competitions, his best return since moving from Monaco in 2015, but has fallen away this campaign with the arrival of Cavani.

The 25-year-old has scored just four times in the Premier League from 20 appearances, 16 starts, with just two more in the Champions League.

Despite being pretty poor from the start, it was the hosts who took the lead on the half hour mark, when Marcus Rashford cut in from the left and beat Karl Darlow at his near post.

Steve Bruce would have been happy how his side had performed and they got their just reward six minutes later, when Allan Saint-Maximin equalised after the hosts failed to clear a corner.

Solskjaer's side grew into the game in the second half and James put them ahead in the 57th minute. Martial had his best moment of the game soon after but Darlow saved his effort and was soon replaced.

United wrapped up the win as Bruno Fernandes scored from the spot, to take them back above Leicester on goal difference but still 10 points behind leaders Manchester City.
