Martial off to a slow start this season

Only nine days after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer urged Anthony Martial to prove his critics wrong, the Frenchman underwhelmed against Southampton, prompting Gary Neville to insist Manchester United do everything possible to get Harry Kane before the transfer window ends.

However, the England international will not be arriving at Old Trafford before Tuesday's deadline. Indeed, he appears to be sticking put today, having announced on Wednesday that he will remain at Tottenham Hotspur despite Manchester City's strong interest in his services.


Regardless, a striker of Kane's caliber would be a vast improvement over the choices now available to United manager Jose Mourinho.

Of course, Martial is still only 25, but his recent form suggests he isn't the solution.

Martial was unable to participate in United's attacks on Sunday. With one pass, he managed to locate Bruno Fernandes, but he failed to pick out Paul Pogba or Greenwood, who were on each side of him.


However, if he wants to see more playing time, he'll have to dramatically improve his game. Otherwise, another poor season at Old Trafford awaits Martial.
