Manchester United have endured their worst start to a season since 1993. But could Jose turn things around if he opts for Martial over Sanchez?.
Firstly, I think Sanchez was a political buy, to stop Manchester City requiring the Chileans services, I don’t think he was on the list of players Mourinho wanted to buy.
There is no denying that Sanchez is a good player, he was scoring nearly every game at Arsenal, but he’s failed to perform at the same levels at Manchester United.
Due to the arrival of Sanchez, Martial has dropped down the pecking order. Martial has proved he is a talent at Manchester United, he’s shown he can perform in big games, and score goals. Whereas Sanchez as yet to prove he is a key player for Manchester United.
Martial’s stats last season speak volumes and show how much of a key player he is for Manchester United. He scored 9 goals in 18 premier league starts and 12 substitute appearances, Martial averages 0.51 goals per 90 mins, whereas Sanchez has only managed 2 goals per 0.17 per 90 mins.
Martial is a key player, with his speed and skilful dribbling, he is a danger to any defender he comes up against. Sanchez as a tendency to give the ball away too many times, although he as good vision for a forward through ball it doesn’t always pay off.
Both Martial and Sanchez are good players in there own right, but I think Martial brings more to the team than Sanchez does, Martial is already an established player within the team, and Jose should give the nod to Martial over Sanchez, and if he does then I think Manchester United could kick-start their season.
