French forward Anthony Martial is looking to add more goals to his tally for Manchester United between now and the end of the season. The 21-year-old has been in tremendous form for the Red Devils in the early part of the campaign, producing key goals including the winner against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.

United were expected to be challenging for the Premier League title, but as things stand, they may not even finish in the top four. Chelsea are the frontrunners for the title, and it is hard to see any team catching the London club.
