Eric Bailly thrilled with Manchester United victory over Tottenham Hotspur

Eric Bailly thrilled with Manchester United victory over Tottenham Hotspur”

Gary Neville said he feels Martial only gives 85% effort when he plays, and said that "there's obviously something wrong with him".

Martial came on as a sub for Marcus Rashford to score the victor against Tottenham, as the pair continue to split time in United's attack in support of Romelu Lukaku.

Neville certainly has a point or two to make, as it's true Martial struggled last season, and saw big drop-off in year two at Old Trafford from what he accomplished in year one.

Rashford has played much more - 607 minutes - but his three goals and three assists have come at intervals of 100 minutes. You always get the feeling he's playing at 85 per cent. He's worth £50million and with that talent, he's got to step up.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has a selection dilemma with Rashford and Martial both producing impressive performances.

Neville thinks Martial has the talent to be "tearing this league apart" but thinks Mourinho and France head coach Didier Deschamps have identified a problem in his attitude.

"He could be a player that could score 20 goals in 20 games if he really wanted to and strived to be the best".

Mourinho drew an interesting distinction between them, however, when he explained his decision to pitch Martial into the fray at Rashford's expense at Old Trafford on Saturday. "Young players need that sort of environment around them", he said earlier this season.

"Vertonghen has to take the blame, he slept on the far side and he leaves Dier with no chance".

He scored the only goal in United's 1-0 win away to Benfica in the Champions League and netted the consolation goal in their shock 2-1 defeat at Huddersfield Town after replacing Martial at half-time. "Both teams, with the money invested, second isn't good enough".
