ANTHONY MARTIAL REVIVED

It feels like Anthony Martial has been playing forever. In 2015 the Frenchman arrived at Old Trafford for £36 million, reaching up to £50 million in add-ons, making him the most expensive teenager in football at the time. Since then Martial has shown glimpses of his talent, but has had his fair share of obstacles in the way. Arrivals of players like Ibrahimovic and Lukaku saw, being pushed out wide and not being trusted as Mourinho’s starting central striker, has limited Martial’s growth.

Martial was Man United’s top goalscorer in his first season with the club, scoring 18 goals in 56 games along with winning the FA Cup and winning the 2015 European Golden Boy Award. Since then Martial has not hit those same heights, but in recent weeks he is coming to the fold, scoring a brace in a 2-2 against Chelsea and slotting away another goal in his previous game against Everton.

With Lukaku benched, Sanchez and Rashford most likely shifted out wide and Man United wanting to renew Martial’s contract for the long term, could this be the season Martial finally sets his position as Man United’s main striker?

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE: ONE TO WATCH:

JADON SANCHO

Team: Borussia Dortmund

Age: 18

Nationality: England

Last year August, Borussia Dortmund made the bargain signing of Jadon Sancho, arriving from Manchester City for £8 million.

The English teenage winger has since excelled in Germany and has played his team’s two opening Champions League games to date. He also received an England call-up thanks to his recent form with the German outfit.

Sancho’s statistics indicate that he is an industrious winger and replicates the work of teammate Marco Reus. Sancho has registered 7 assists in all competitions, along with completing 1.7 key passes per game. He doesn’t take on many dribbles per game, taking on 1.3 per game and only completing half of those he takes on. Showing that he fits into a more well drilled passing team.

He doesn’t take as many shots either and this reflects poorly on his attacking contributions. As Sancho notched in 12 goals in 18 games during his time with the Man City U18’s. With further growth and more game time, I’m sure that Jadon Sancho will establish himself as a world class player.

GOALKEEPER RECORD BROKEN

Kepa Arrizabalaga (got that on my first try without checking) has joined Chelsea from Athletic Bilbao for £71 million.

His transfer fee is the most for a goalkeeper and breaks Alisson Becker’s two week record, who broke Gianluigi Buffon’s 17 year record.
