Liverpool fans urge club to sign Anthony Martial despite poor Brighton display

Manchester United winger Anthony Martial put in a disappointing display in the 1-0 defeat against Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium on Friday night, but Liverpool fans would still like their club to sign the £58.5m-rated star this summer.

The 22-year-old was handed just his second Premier League start since the end of February by manager Jose Mourinho with Alexis Sanchez absent, but he failed to take advantage in a disappointing display where all three of his shots went off target.

The France international was indirectly criticised by his boss post-match to raise further question marks over his future at Old Trafford, but the showing and situation seemingly hasn’t put off the Anfield faithful, where Martial would compete for a place in the frontline with Mo Salah and Sadio Mane.

Liverpool supporters, who have also urged the club to sign Roma striker Edin Dzeko, were quick to have their say on the forward’s latest display via social media, and while one said “Klopp would get him back to his best”, another said “I’d love Martial at LFC”.
