Anthony Martial believes Manchester United can win both the Premier League and the Champions League this season.

The £36 million summer signing has hit the ground running at Old Trafford following his arrival from Monaco, scoring four goals in his first seven games for the club, including a sublime effort on his debut against rivals Liverpool.

Under boss Louis van Gaal, the Red Devils look to have improved this term thanks to a host of new arrivals including Martial, and sit in third place in the Premier League, two points behind league leaders Manchester City.

They've picked up one win from their first two games in the Champions League this season, and Martial believes the foundations have been set for a successful season that will end in silverware.

"I think we can win the Premier League and the Champions League this season. Both of them. We are among the top five clubs [in Europe]," he told Telefoot.

Martial also said he was happy with how he has started his career at Old Trafford, while the 19-year-old insists he doesn't think about the fact that he's the most expensive teenager in football history when he is on the pitch.

"It is going well so far. I have had a great welcome from the fans. I don't think about my price on the pitch," he explained.


"The goal against Liverpool, the big enemy of the club, allowed the fans to get to know me a bit better."

Manchester United will resume their Premier League campaign after the international break against Everton at Goodison Park.
