Manchester United fans slam Anthony Martial after FC Basel win

Manchester United’s return to the group stages of the Champions League got off to the perfect start as they beat FC Basel 3-0 at Old Trafford on Tuesday night, but Red Devils fans weren’t impressed with Anthony Martial’s performance.

The French forward returned to the starting line-up for the visit of the Swiss champions having found himself on the substitutes’ bench for the 2-2 draw against Stoke City in the Premier League on Saturday, but he struggled to make a real impact from the left-hand side before being replaced by Jesse Lingard in the 69th minute.

The Red Devils still sealed a comfortable victory though with goals from substitutes Marouane Fellaini and Marcus Rashford being sandwiched by yet another for Romelu Lukaku.

Man United supporters were quick to have their say on Martial’s showing via social media, and while some claimed that he “looked uninterested”, others feel that he needs to be “more consistent” if he wants to be a regular starter.
