Many Manchester United fans heavily scrutinised forward Anthony Martial after his side’s 0-0 draw against Arsenal on Saturday evening.
The 25-year-old emerged as a second-half substitute in what was a quiet afternoon for both teams on the attacking front, as both defensive lines came out on top during a chilly affair in North London.
Despite being one of the club’s top earners on £250k-per-week (Spotrac), Martial was not deemed worthy enough to start this game and failed to make an impact on the tie as a whole, proving his manager right.
Sofascore recorded that the France international failed to win any duels, did not get any shots on target and made no successful dribbles.
Should Manchester United sell Martial?
With this in mind, supporters were incensed by another showing where Martial didn’t turn up, with some saying that he should be performing better, considering his weekly salary.
Martial slated by MUFC fans
“Anthony Martial is stealing a living. #MUFC”
“Martial doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing”
“Martial body language is absolutely shocking. Notice it every game huffing and puffing”
“Rashford really suffers being on the right. And- frankly- Martial isn’t worth accommodating for that.”
“I’d rather Telles play LW than Martial, he offers nothing.”
“Rashford & Bruno look absolutely knackered. Martial is off the mark, Cavani getting no service at all.”
