Jermaine Jenas: Anthony Martial is Manchester United’s most natural finisher

by Marwan Harraz

Pundit Jermaine Jenas has lauded Manchester United’s Anthony Martial as the club’s most natural finisher following his recent good form.

The Frenchman was crucial in the draw against Chelsea and the subsequent win over Everton as he continues to impress.

The winger scored an incredible brace against the Blues only to be let down by his teammates’ defending while he won a penalty against the Toffees and grabbed what proved to be the eventual winner.

Jenas has sided with the majority of the United fans who believe Martial is the club’s best finisher despite others grabbing more goals over the length of a season.

The former AS Monaco man has been undroppable with Alexis Sanchez instead making way for him with Jose Mourinho finally listening to the club’s supporters.

According to the Daily Star, Jermaine said to beIN SPORTS: “With regards to Martial, I think that he is a huge positive in what has been a frustrating couple of months for United.

“You’d argue of the forwards he has that he’s probably the most natural finisher even though the amount of goals [Romelu] Lukaku has scored.

“Especially at the minute anyway, he’s the one that if you need a goal they seem to be turning to and when it comes to how good he can be, that’s down to himself.”

The hope is now that Anthony keeps up his good form as he’s previously shown to be a little inconsistent.

Of course given his age it’s completely natural for him to have ups and downs but fans are hoping he can prove he’s developed and taken the next step.

It’s clear to see Martial has plenty to offer to this Manchester United squad and he must continue to force Mourinho’s hand.
