According to ESPN’s Manchester United correspondent Rob Dawson on his official Twitter account, Anthony Martial is set to start the huge Premier League clash against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, and Red Devils fans are delighted with the news.
Sounds like Anthony Martial is going to start for United today. Shows the turnaround. Wasn't even in the squad at Anfield last season.

While the Frenchman has scored five goals and provided a further six assists in nine appearances in all competitions for United this season, he has only started one of their seven top flight fixtures this term with Marcus Rashford often being preferred on the left-hand side.
However, it has now been suggested that will change against the Merseyside outfit with Martial not featuring for France during the international break like Rashford did for England.
Man United supporters were quick to have their say on the rumour via social media, and while some believe he will “be the difference”, others say he will make a big impact as he will be “nice and fresh”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Makes sense given he hasn’t played for France. Nice and fresh

He’s been brilliant this season and that’s all down to Jose’s man Management. Jose has got him working for the team!

he’s had 2 week off, fresh and ready to destroy that diabolical defence.
