The France international has found some good form to help Mourinho’s side collect seven points from their last three Premier League games.
Martial netted the Red Devils’ equaliser in a thrilling 3-2 victory over Newcastle United at Old Trafford before the international break.
The 22-year-old scored two brilliant goals in Manchester United’s 2-2 draw with title rivals Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge following the Premier League’s return.
The former Lyon striker netted for the fourth time in three league games on Sunday evening when Martial dispatched a beautiful curling finish in a 2-1 victory over Everton.
Martial has often been criticised by his manager for his inconsistent performance since Mourinho took over the reins of the Old Trafford outfit from Louis van Gaal in May 2016.
Speaking at his post-match media conference after Martial’s excellent performance in Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Everton, Mourinho picked out Martial for special praise.
“I think he has the same natural talent that he had one year ago, two years ago, but he’s improving his way of thinking football, thinking training too and thinking his role in the team, so I’m really, really happy with him,” Mourinho said.
“And with Luke Shaw, with boys that are improving and difficult periods for them, difficult periods for myself, because I want more from them and I took them to the limit.
“But in this moment I think both of them and in today’s case, Anthony, he was able to do things that he was not able to do before, so I’m really, really happy with Anthony.”
Martial has scored four times in six games in the Premier League this season to help Manchester United to bounce back from a difficult start to the campaign.
The France international moved to Manchester United in a £36m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco in the 2015 summer transfer window.
Martial scored on his Premier League debut in a 3-1 win over Liverpool FC at Old Trafford in September 2015 after the France star finished with 17 goals in all competitions.
Mourinho’s appointment coincided with Martial’s drop in form but the Frenchman appears to have turned a corner under the Portuguese head coach in recent weeks.
Manchester United will make the trip to Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday 3 November as Mourinho’s men look to record back to back Premier League victories.
