‘Call me insane’ – Manchester United fan makes Anthony Martial Golden Boot prediction following stunning pre-season as French forward is backed to score more goals than Chelsea new boy Raheem Sterling

    If there’s a time of year to get carried away with things then it is pre-season.

    One Manchester United fan has been so taken with how Anthony Martial has performed in pre-season that he thinks the forward will be a shock contender for the Premier League Golden Boot.

    The Red Devils are stepping up their preparations for the new season with huge question marks over the future of Cristiano Ronaldo following his revelation that he’s looking to leave the club.

    While Erik ten Hag is in the market for a new attacker, Martial has certainly seized the opportunity presented to him by scoring three goals in three appearances for the club during pre-season.

    The French star looked like a big contender to leave Old Trafford on a permanent basis this summer after falling out of favour in recent years, however his recent form could suggest a fresh opportunity to make his name with the club.

    According to Luke, a United fan, Martial’s campaign could be set for loftier heights than merely being involved for United.

    Luke told talkSPORT: “I think that he’s up there to get the Golden Boot this year, Anthony Martial.

    “Call me insane, but United bought him for a reason and he was rated long before Mbappe and that. I just think that playing under a new manager in Ten Hag will bring the best out of him.”

    Listening to the Man United fan’s opinion, Jason Cundy couldn’t believe what he was hearing.

    Cundy said: “I don’t know what to say, Luke.

    “If he does, you need to go and buy some lottery tickets because that is the best guess, because based on everything we’ve seen Martial do so far in the Premier League, there’s no evidence to suggest that that’s going to happen.”

    Luke then claimed that he expected Martial to score more goals than Raheem Sterling at Chelsea, leading Cundy to reply: “Based on what?

    “Let me tell you about Sterling, alright? There are only three players since he signed for Man City that have scored more goals in the Premier League: Kane, Salah and Vardy. They’re the only three.

    “If he does, then go and buy a lottery ticket!”
