Martial has been impressive in his first season at Old Trafford, since making the move from AS Monaco, scoring 12 goals in 39 appearances in all competitions.

Upon his arrival Ligue 1, the French forward has been compared to Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry due to their similar playing style.

However, Louis Saha, who played for United between 2008 and 2004, believes the comparisons are spot on.

"He has definitely got the quality and the platform for working really hard at Manchester United," Saha told MUTV.

"When you get that, you get the experience under your belt of being at a big club and you get respected easier with France. When you see him, he has as much quality as Thierry Henry at this age.

"Thierry was a really decisive player and that is where Martial needs to work. He needs to be more precise and give more indication to his game.

"Everything seems to be easy for him: being on the ball, being strong, holding the ball at the right moments, getting important goals and being able to play week-in and week-out.

"He hasn't played many games during his career, so he has done really well to adapt his physique."
