‘Anthony Martial in Premier League’s top ten strikers and would get into most teams’ – Troy Deeney defends Manchester United forward as damning stat emerges

Anthony Martial has been lauded as one of the top ten strikers in the Premier League, despite a damning stat that highlights the Manchester United ace’s measly goal tally this season.
Troy Deeney is a big fan of the Frenchman and insists he would walk into ‘most teams’ in the top-flight, saying Arsenal would love to have him.
Questions still remain over Anthony Martial at Man Unitedgetty
Martial cut a frustrated figure as United beat Fulham 2-1 on Wednesday night to return to the top of the Premier League table.
Pushed out on the left wing as Edinson Cavani was picked to lead the line, Martial had little effect on the game while Cavani delivered with United’s opening goal, with a Paul Pogba stunner later sealing three points.
It was suggested at the beginning of the season that Cavani’s arrival from Paris Saint-Germain – where he left as the club’s all-time leading scorer – would help Martial become more ruthless in front of goal and help the 25-year-old finally realise his potential… but we’re not seeing evidence of that yet.
The Frenchman drew another blank against Fulham, leaving him with just two league goals this season, and only five goals in 23 appearances in all competitions.

It’s a staggeringly low tally for a player who ended last season as the club’s top scorer with 23 goals in total.
In comparison, Cavani has now scored four league goals despite making NINE fewer starts than Martial this season.
There have been major doubts placed over Martial’s long-term future at Old Trafford, with recent reports claiming the club are willing to sell the forward to raise funds to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund as his replacement.
But Deeney defended the striker on Wednesday night, insisting he is still having a big impact on games this season, despite his poor goal record.

Speaking during last night’s game, which was live on talkSPORT, Watford captain Deeney said: “Anthony Martial’s character will always be very dramatic – if he’s upset he’s going to show you that he’s upset.
“The guy is an unbelievable talent, you can’t deny that
“It’s about expectation. Everyone always talks about his £50m price tag, but the guy still delivers.
“He is, in my opinion, in the top ten strikers of the Premier League, he gets into most teams.
“If you offered him now to Leicester, they would take him, if you offered him to Arsenal, they would take him.”
