Almost every time we see Bastian Schweinsteiger in training with Manchester United, he’s got a big smile plastered on his face.
In contrast, Anthony Martial always looks focused, like he’s just about ready to score another winner against Liverpool at Old Trafford.
You get the feeling that all Martial is concentrating on right now is his football. No distractions, no playing with the media, just a pure focus on making sure he plays to the best of his ability.
With four goals in his first five games, whatever Martial is doing right now is working and he continues to exceed expectations with every passing performance. He might not have scored against Sunderland but he did everything else in arguably his best game for United to date.
United need Martial on top form this week with games against Wolfsburg and Arsenal coming up. If he can continue to defy critics and score in both of those games, then his already exponentially increasing stock will gather even more pace.
