Those other players don't have the fanboys Martial does. The Martial FC club bring it on themselves, hyping up their man and defending him while he is turning in Championship level performances.I was thinking about that this week. Regardless of what is happening on the field the caf has a group of culprits, Martial and Pogba are tier 1 even when they don't play, Ole is tier 2 and then it's Maguire, Lindelof and Shaw(even when he doesn't play). The likes of Bruno, Fred or AWB can be absolutely shoddy and at worst they are deemed as "anonymous".
Pogba has been shit today though and Martial as useless as the other attackers.
He isn't playing as a DM. Even if he was in that position, his ability to actually pass the ball is non-existent. His ability to make good decisions is zero. A dangerous overhead kick in our own box says it all. The guy is a muppet.I thought Ole learnt his lesson to never play pogba as a DM again.

Cavani did nothing, because there was nobody in midfield capable of stringing two passes together. So it never got to him.That was disgraceful performance. Pogba & Scott played the ball too slow, Martial lost the ball like 6-7 times in that first half probably and he’s so unpredictable. Cavani did nothing. Why do we need to play Rashford & Bruno in this game??
