Anthony Martial: I can add more goals, assists for Manchester United

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial believes there is more to come from him this season.

Martial, 21, has scored six times in 15 appearances, having managed just nine last season, and has earned a first France call-up in over a year.

And speaking ahead of United's trip to Premier League champions Chelsea on Sunday, he told MUTV: "At the moment I'm happy, even if I could have done more, scored more goals and made more decisive passes.

"I think the difference is that last year I didn't have a good season but, for now, things are going pretty well.

"I'm achieving my objectives and I hope to score a lot more by the end of the season.

"I must continue to keep up good performances for my club and if I've got the chance to start over there [for France], I will do the best I can."

All four of Martial's Premier League goals this season have been scored in games he started on the bench.

Manager Jose Mourinho has tended to rotate between Martial and England forward Marcus Rashford as his left-sided attacker, with the duo's only two starts together coming in Carabao Cup wins over Burton and Swansea.

Martial has three starts and six substitute appearances to his name in the league this season, while he has been in the starting XI for three of United's four Champions League games.

His most recent appearance off the bench came at Old Trafford last Saturday as he netted the only goal of the game in United's league win against Tottenham.

He could well be a substitute again when United travel to Stamford Bridge for a game that may start with them eight points behind leaders Manchester City, who host Arsenal earlier on Sunday.

But Martial said he was content to make his mark after coming off the bench if required.

"I think when I come on to the pitch as a sub, I'm hungry, desperate to play,'' he added.

"I want to get some action, to score, to make some key passes, I want to give everything I can to help the team."
