Man Utd 1-2 Sheffield: Why Martial Is ‘The Sacrificial Lamb’ After Loss

Anthony Martial‘s form is growing concern for Manchester United after just two Premier League goals all season.

And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that the France international won't be spared from criticism after the Red Devils were stunned 2-1 by rock-bottom Sheffield United on Wednesday.

Chris Wilder's side got just their second win of the season in the match, with Oliver Burke scoring a 74th-minute winner for the Blades.

Martial started and played the full match but was unable to generate much in attack.

The 25-year-old has netted just five times in 25 appearances this season and although Solskjaer backed the forward, he also said he won't be spared from criticism.

“I think the whole team will probably get criticism tonight and myself as well,” Solskjaer said in his post-game press conference. “I don’t think Anthony is exempt from that.

“We all should be criticised because we didn’t perform. Anthony is working really hard in training, working on his finishing and movement. I’ve got no qualms that he will come good.”
