Throughout this summer, it looked as though Anthony Martial’s Manchester United career was coming to an end.

After the Frenchman left United’s US Tour in pre-season due to the birth of his son, Jose Mourinho responded by fining him.

"He has the baby and after the baby is born - beautiful baby, full of health, thank god. He should be here and he is not here,” Mourinho said about Martial’s absence.

And in the early stages of the season, Martial’s first-team opportunities were severely restricted.

Mourinho would surely be looking to get rid of him in January.

However, Martial is slowly turning his United career around it seems.

He’s been offered a new contract by Ed Woodward and has scored four goals in his previous three appearances.

So, is Martial finally starting to fulfil his incredible potential?

Well, not exactly. That’s according to Gary Neville anyway.

Neville spent a good 10 minutes studying Martial's game on Monday Night Football and his analysis was superb.

"Some weeks I think he’s brilliant, other weeks I’m not sure he’s a Manchester United player," Neville began. "What drives me crazy about him is his off the ball work... He doesn’t know where to be and where to run at the right times."

Check out Neville's full analysis of Martial below:


It was analysis that really impressed United fans - who completely agreed.

Check out the reaction:

Of course, Martial is still relatively young and can still develop into a world-class player.

But, as Neville stated, he’s still got plenty of learn.
