Manchester United met Sunderland in Saturday’s Premier League clash. Ahead of the Saturday’s clash, United midfielder Michael Carrick has hailed the form of team-mate Anthony Martial and he believes he will improve with time.
Martial, who completed a summer move to Old Trafford at the start of 2015/16 season, has scored 6 goals in 20 Premier League games this season.
“His performances have been very good,” Carrick said of Martial to the club’s official website.
“He makes it look so effortless. It almost looks like he is not really sprinting but he has that burst of two or three yards to get past players.
“You certainly wouldn’t want to be defending against him one-on-one in the box because once he knocks it by you and gets that yard, he is away! He has been so effective for us in the last couple of games.
“The amount of ability he has got is huge. The potential is certainly there. It is easy to forget the age he is and how little football he has actually played as well.
“To have such an impact at this stage, with the expectations based on him and the way he’s dealt with it, has been superb.
“His performances have been very good. I think we have to understand that sometimes he might not be that shining light and have days when it’s not quite happening for him, and that’s understandable.
“But over time he’ll improve and I’ve seen a big improvement already in this short time. Hopefully that trend will continue and he’ll get better and better.”
With 9 goals in all competition, the former Monaco has been appreciated by fans for his efforts so far this season and he is set to develop into a top player.
Reports has it that his value could increase to £57.6 million.
