Blind: No defender wants to face Anthony Martial

Manchester United goalscorer Daley Blind hailed the performance of Anthony Martial for victory at FA Cup opponents Derby County.

Blind paid tribute to Martial’s unquestionable influence on the victory over Derby and explained why the former Monaco player must be something of a nightmare for opposition defenders to play against.

“I think as a defender you are not happy if you have to play against him at the moment,” the Dutchman said.

“He is so quick and he makes good decisions. He can go left or right, and that is difficult for every defender.”

“He gets into great positions and I have said before that he is going to be a great striker.”
