Martial and Shaw must keep up their stunning form under Mourinho

Manchester United have been hugely disappointing in recent times as they already appear to be out of the race for the title, with a top four spot creeping away. 

The Red Devils just can’t seem to ensure any consistency at this moment in time under Jose Mourinho, with a number of factors causing for unsettling times at Old Trafford.

However, the United boss can’t help but thank a couple of first team members for holding his side together at times this season. Indeed, the Red Devils have been heavily reliant on particular players in pressurised situations, and it’s fair to say that they’ve certainly impressed and delivered at times.

With that in mind, here’s a look at TWO Manchester United players that must keep up their stunning form…

ANTHONY MARTIAL

Anthony Martial has been waiting in the wings at Manchester United, with bench appearances being the norm for the very talented Frenchman. But, he has been one of the standout performers in recent matches and surely can’t be too far away from a permanent place in the side, with dangerous performances against Derby and Valencia.

Indeed, it’s vital that Mourinho opens his eyes and starts putting his faith in the winger as he has the ability to lift United out of the slump they currently find themselves in.

LUKE SHAW

Luke Shaw has been a breath of fresh air down the left-hand side of the defence for Manchester United in the current campaign, with contributions in attacking areas.

The Englishman was called up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad after enjoying a rich vein of form towards the start of the season, and it’s fair to say that he hasn’t dropped off the pace much in recent times.

So, it’s vital for United that he keeps up his fine form in weeks to come as he has been able to ensure defensive solidity and has contributed heavily in the final third.
