MARTIAL FLAW

Anthony Martial has been slammed by pundits for his performance in Manchester United’s 1-1 draw at Southampton.

The Red Devils equalled Arsenal’s record of 27 away Premier League games unbeaten by avoiding defeat, but Martial failed to catch the eye.

The 25-year-old netted just four times in the Premier League last season, and has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

He managed just 58 minutes before being hooked by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at St. Mary’s and faces a battle for playing time with the likes of Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho.

Martial has been at the club since an initial £36million switch from Monaco that could eventually rise to £54million.

And former professional Jamie O’Hara told talkSPORT breakfast: “Martial was shocking, it was a really bad performance from him.

“He just plays like he’s not bothered whether he plays well or not. It’s a weird attitude to have.

“When I used to go on a football pitch, I was just obsessed with trying to be the best player out there.

“Martial just plays like he doesn’t care whether he’s good or not. It’s just it’s weird how he plays because he’s got so much talent.

“But it’s not good enough, he’s miles off it when you compare him and Lukaku, they’re just worlds apart.”
