Man United's Anthony Martial is going to 'get better and better' - Carrick

The FC crew discuss Manchester United's potential record-breaking profits, but recent failure to bring in top talent.

Manchester United veteran Michael Carrick has praised Anthony Martial's "superb impact" at Old Trafford, saying that the 20-year-old is only going to "get better and better."

The France international, who signed for United from Monaco in the summer for a fee that could rise to £57.6 million, has scored six goals in 20 Premier League appearances this season. Performances, Carrick suggests, that is just a hint of what is to come.

"The amount of ability he's got is huge," Carrick told Man United's official website. "The potential is certainly there. It's easy to forget the age he is and how little football he's actually played as well. To have such an impact at this stage, with the expectations based on him and the way he's dealt with it, has been superb.

"His performances have been very good. I think we have to understand that sometimes he might not be that shining light and have days when it's not quite happening for him, and that's understandable.

"But over time he'll improve and I've seen a big improvement already in this short time. Hopefully that trend will continue and he'll get better and better."

While Martial's eye for goal is excellent, what has Carrick excited is the Frenchman's ability -- and pace -- with the ball at his feet.

"He makes it look so effortless," Carrick said. "It almost looks like he's not really sprinting but he has that burst of two or three yards to get past players.

"You certainly wouldn't want to be defending against him one-on-one in the box because once he knocks it by you and gets that yard, he's away! He's been so effective for us in the last couple of games."
