Manchester United's Anthony Martial will be 'a force' this season - Lingard

Manchester United's Anthony Martial will be 'a force' this season - Lingard”

The depth of the Old Trafford squad means that patience will be required by star turns at times, with the likes of Lingard, Rashford, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata competing for limited places.

The United boss has criticised the Frenchman both publicly and behind the scenes but the 21-year-old has made a fine start to the new season.

Manchester United were 4-1 winners over Burton Albion FC today in the third round of the League Cup.

"It's insane when you think back all those years to when you're five years old going to the development centre, and then going all the way through the ranks", the youngster said.

"I think I'd like more goals and assists coming into play this year", he told the club's official website.

"If he continues to do that throughout the season, he'll be a force this season. With the pace we had up front, we pressed them early on and the early goal helped us a lot".

Jesse Lingard has revealed he and Marcus Rashford have personal targets for the season, but he is keeping them under wraps.

Rashford, 19, was deployed in his favoured central attacking position with Romelu Lukaku rested and impressed at Old Trafford.

Each is expecting to get plenty of opportunities, though, allowing them to chase down individual goals while contributing to the collective cause.

"Each game, he's improving and he wants to work hard and learn from the best", added Lingard. "He came on at a comfortable score, so he's come into a game where he can get on the ball and make things happen".
