Anthony Martial will only get better, says Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal.

Anthony Martial continued is fine start to his Manchester United career with a brace in Sunday's win at the St Mary's.

The Red Devils summer signing scored two goals to hand Louis van Gaal's side a win over Southampton. The Saints had a good start to the game and broke the deadlock through Graziano Pelle in the 13th minute but United responded through Martial 21 minutes later.

Five minutes into the second-half Martial registered his third Premier League goal and Mata made it 3-1 before Pelle scored his second to reduce the deficit. After the clash Louis van Gaal said of the former Monaco striker: “What pleases me most about him is that he scores goals.

“That is the most important thing, that as a striker he scores goals. That is his quality, his talent. He can improve I think but he has a high level of talent. He shows it.

“You cannot expect consistency from a player of 19 years old. Emotionally they shall have a lot of dips so that I expect also from him but that is not a big problem for me.

“He cannot speak English I speak French with him, First he needs to adapt to the English culture, he is doing great – three matches in a row and three goals. Not every player can adapt in that system but he shows he wants to do that and he can do that.” @Chukkymufc
