Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata is full of praise for new teammate Anthony Martial.

The £36million signing from Monaco has been a revelation, scoring four goals in as many games.

“He’s very calm and manages the pressure very well,” said Mata to the Mirror.

“He doesn’t just bring goals to the team, he brings many more things. He knows how to play off team-mates, he knows how to run in behind, how to head, and he’s quick and can run deep.

“He’s a very talented young player who is having a great moment. I’d watched him play, but not a lot – a few games with Monaco.

“He did what he did at 19 and that’s difficult, because if you come from France to England, you would normally need time to settle down.

“Then there’s his age, but he’s doing great.

“A striker needs confidence and to score in your first game – and then score four in four games – will have a big impact on his ­confidence and for the team.

“He’s been doing very well until now. I just hope he can do this sort of thing a lot of times because he could be very important for us.”
