Thierry Henry believes that Anthony Martial is on his way to rediscovering his best form for Manchester United.

The French striker endured something of a quiet season last term in his first campaign working under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford as he struggled to hold down a regular spot in the first team.

However, Martial has begun the new campaign in fine form and has been a regular fixture in the first team for Mourinho’s side.

Martial has scored three goals and made two assists in seven Premier League appearances for the Red Devils and he was chosen to start against Liverpool in the goalless draw at Anfield on Saturday.

After a quiet campaign last term, Henry believes that Martial is now starting to find his best form for the Red Devils and is backing him to have a good season this term.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Henry said: “Oh he is [confident], you can see the difference, you can see the difference in his eyes.

“Every time he walks on the field, I use the word ‘kill’. Hopefully I’m not offending anyone with that word, but he wants to kill people.

“He wants to have a go, he wants to score, he wants to have an assist. I think that’s the most important thing.”

Martial will be hoping to start for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Champions League action on Wednesday night with a trip to Maribor.

The Red Devils will take on Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon as they look to get back to winning ways in the Premier League.
