Anthony Martial has been on fire in Manchester United’s last few games and fans are hoping he can continue that form away at Sunderland on Saturday.

The young Frenchman set two up against Derby County, scored and set one up against Stoke City and Branislav Ivanovic is still having Martial shaped nightmares after his performance at Stamford Bridge. In every way, he’s living up to his big price tag and more.

Something will be different for Martial on Saturday as he’ll be wearing a new pair of Nike Mercurial boots at the Stadium of Light. Here’s hoping they can bring him some more goals.

No player has got me excited quite like Martial has done this season, not even Angel di Maria. The Argentinian started off in electric form but that died off quickly, whereas Martial is in his best form of the season now in February when we are heading into the crucial period of the season.

Martial should be rubbing his hands together at the idea of facing a Sunderland side who lie in 19th place in the Premier League and if he can continue the sort of form which has made it impossible to defend him in recent weeks, we’ll be in for a treat this weekend.
