Anthony Martial set for first Manchester United start against PSV

Published Add your comment

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal will hand Anthony Martial his first start for the club when they take on PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday, reports the Mirror.

The £36million signing from Monaco caused pandemonium inside Old Trafford when he finished a solo effort after emerging from the bench in a 3-1 win over Liverpool.

It was a goal that sealed three points for the Red Devils and helped to alleviate some of the pressure placed on Martial's head by his huge price tag.

With Wayne Rooney struggling with a hamstring injury, Martial is set to move from the bench to the starting line-up when Manchester United get their Champions League campaign underway in Holland.

Marouane Fellaini started up front against Liverpool, but Van Gaal is ready to give the attacking role to the impressive young Frenchman. He will, however, assess all his options in training today before making a final decision.

A low key affair

Manchester United should find qualification from Group B relatively straightforward, but the Eredivisie champions will be far from pushovers.

PSV won 16 of 17 home games on their way to a dominant title victory last season and have started this season off strongly, winning both home games convincingly. 

However, a team assembled with the help of hundreds of millions of pounds, including PSV's star of last season Memphis Depay, should have little problem against what is still a side of lesser quality.

It should be a chance for Martial to increase further his confidence and his reputation in equal measure.
