Keown: Martial pace key to United beating Wolfsburg

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown feels Anthony Martial will be key to Manchester United’s chances tonight.

United need to win in Wolfsburg to reach the Champions League knockout phase.

Keown told the Mail: “With Wayne Rooney out injured and United needing a win to completely guarantee their passage to the last 16, Anthony Martial will be key.

“He didn’t have much joy against Winston Reid on Saturday but Dante is not quite as athletic and is often punished in possession.”

“The former Bayern Munich defender hasn’t played for Brazil since their 7-1 hammering by Germany in the World Cup, and he could be a player United look to exploit.”

“He won’t enjoy Martial’s pace, that’s for sure.”
