Manchester United fans demand Anthony Martial starts against Crystal Palace

Manchester United play host to bottom-of-the-table Crystal Palace in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Saturday, and Red Devils fans want the in-form Anthony Martial to start the game.

Despite scoring five goals and providing a further five assists in his eight appearances in all competitions this season, the Frenchman has only started once in the league this term.

While the 21-year-old did pick up a slight knock in the 4-1 win against CSKA Moscow – in which he scored one and assisted the other three – on Wednesday night, he is expected to be fit for the visit of Roy Hodgson’s men.

The Eagles have lost all six of their top flight fixtures this term without scoring a goal, and they were beaten 5-0 by Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.

Manchester United supporters were quick to have their say on Martial ahead of Saturday’s game, and many believe that “he needs to start”.
