Anthony Martial seeks showdown talks with Man United boss

GETTY TALKSPORTMan Utd's win over Man City has helped Liverpool claims Danny Murphy

"If I was you I would go in another direction, he is the player with more appearances since I arrived at the club".

It's suggested in France that Martial's prime concern is his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho, which has been tense this season. "Probably I have to reduce and send some away and have a squad of 12 players".

Martial has found his playing time to be somewhat restricted this season and he has only made four starts for Mourinho's men since Alexis Sanchez's arrival at Old Trafford from Arsenal in January.

He stressed that he can only give eleven players a starting spot amongst a squad of 22.

Manchester United can not step off the gas following last weekend's derby win over Premier League leaders Manchester City and must ensure they get the points required to secure second place, manager Jose Mourinho said on Friday.

"If I were you, I would ask why [Romelu] Lukaku plays every match, why [Nemanja] Matic plays every match". That would be wonderful economically for the football club if you had only 11 with no injuries and no suspensions and no fatigue. The answer is if you want what I call dry answers, I have dry answers.

Martial has remained an unused substitute in Manchester United's last two Premier League games. It would be better for everyone to have only 11 but is impossible.

City are 13 points clear at the top of the table, however, and will surely seal the title sooner rather than later.

And the Sun claims that local lad Lingard is said to have been the most vocal in goading City's players.

"We come from a big result and during the week I was trying to fight that result by making the players work hard and understand that it is not enough to deserve to finish second, we need the points to finish second", said the Portuguese.

"We need the points to finish second".
