Manchester United’s Anthony Martial has responded to the recent criticism after his side’s picked up a 2-1 loss over Sheffield United on Wednesday.

The 25-year-old has now started 10 more Premier League games than Edinson Cavani and the Uruguayan still has twice as many goals for United.

“Of course, we’re disappointed but any result in the Premier League this season shouldn’t surprise anyone. But, then again, very disappointed we couldn’t put a better performance on, that’s down to us and we just couldn’t find an opening behind or around or between a very compact and good Sheffield United defence,” said Martial after the game.

“The big moments went against us. If you look at it, Billy Sharp has been around the place, and he knows how to put a goalkeeper off, that’s a definite foul on him so David [de Gea] can’t get up. And, for me, the referee makes a mistake by blowing the whistle for our goal at our corner. That’s disappointing but that happens.

“There’s no time to feel sorry for yourself and there’s another game on Saturday. Other teams have lost games and had to bounce back. We have done it before, this group of players have done it so many times and I expect our performance to be much, much better on Saturday.

“We’ve got Arsenal, Southampton and Everton – three massive games – so we can’t feel sorry for ourselves for too long. When I see them in the morning, I expect them to get the mood back up and the focus on Saturday.”
