Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has proved his worth for the team persistently, despite having received less game-time than expected under manager Jose Mourinho this season.

The Frenchman came off the bench last weekend to score the winner against an in-form Tottenham side, and although he missed a penalty in the UEFA Champions League clash against Benfica on Tuesday night, he was in lethal form, and created many chances.

His terrific performances have been recognised well by EA Sports, who have declared the 21-year-old as the most lethal forward in the Premier League at present.


Explained: Mourinho Has One Problem With Rashford And Martial

An analysis of goals to shots of those who have had at least 10 attempts at finding the net reveals how devastating the Frenchman has been.

The former Monaco star has found the net 4 times so far in the Premier League from only 10 shots, which eventually leads to his scoring success rate of 40% whenever he shoots.


With an important away clash against Chelsea on the cards this Sunday, manager Jose Mourinho would definitely like to consider this stat and give Martial maximum possible minutes, over Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford, who haven’t been as lethal.

As per the data, Leicester man Shinji Okazaki takes the second place with 4 goals in 11 shots. However, the Japanese international has played 455 minutes compared to the 269 of Martial. Ruthless league leaders City have 4 players in the Top 10, including Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling, Gabriel Jesus, and Sergio Aguero.
