Solskjaer praises Anthony Martial

Fri 26 February 2021 | 15:09

Anthony Martial has not been at his best lately, but United Solskjaer has no worries about the striker's quality.

Martial has performed poorly in the Premier League this season, scoring only four times. Nevertheless, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer supported the French striker and praised his training efforts.

Solskjaer was asked what they were looking for from their No.9 and told reporters: "

Anthony knows what we want and he is working really hard to do well for the team. That’s what’s pleasing me every day in training

.

"He’s not going to sit down and wait for things to happen. He knows he will have to make it happen himself and we encourage him and coach him, as we know that he’s got this quality and class.

"Everyone goes through a difficult patch at times and Anthony, I think we saw tonight (Thursday), is working harder, and that’s the main thing."

Manchester City

are at the top of the table with 10 points clear of Manchester United and the Red Devils want to increase the pressure on the city rival.

Discussing the title race, he added: "

We just have to focus and tick one game off at a time. As you say the three games are massive. We’ve got Chelsea, who are just behind us, and we’ve got City, away, who are in front of us

.

"Of course, we can’t let them run further away if we have ambitions of catching them and we can’t give Chelsea too much hope to catch us either.

"Every game is important and now until the international break will be a big period of six or seven games. We always say look at April and May to see how we are then, so let’s get to the international break and then we can focus on the run-in."
