The lad has no drive in him. He doesn’t make enough runs and quite often when he has the ball he stops the ball dead and kills any attacking play. Give him to Arsenal. They are spending loads this summer on bang average players

He will go, the writing is on the wall. I think both him and Cavani will be gone by January and also a young striker like Martial is a prime candidate for a deadline day saga.
I don’t think Cavani is going to play until October/December if you look at the quarantine rules and the games for Uruguay that he’s insisting on playing in. If we were going to release him it would probably be this week.

After Southampton it’s hard to justify him getting a starting spot. Greenwood looks a lot more natural in the CF position and has much better movement. Surely Sancho is primed to start tomorrow also.

Oh I know man. Martial shouldn't have been in against Soton either but he was!
He shouldn't even be in the squad.

Definitely mate, completely agree. Cavani being out and Sancho not quite being ready has left us a bit thin up top and on the right. I’d rather see Dan James start tomorrow to be honest…

I hope Auba leaves them and they panic buy Martial. He certainly fits the Wenger profile.

If this is the beginning of the end for Martial here he has nobody to blame but himself.

He's got so much ability, so much talent and yet it feels like he's blown it.

Fergie always argued about having the right mental attitude and work rate when coming here. Sadly he doesn’t possess those qualities. Hopefully he can revive his career somewhere else.

If nobody wants to buy him, then we should try to loan him out with an option to buy

Looked motivated, solid performance when he came on
Like day and night when compared to Sancho

Looked better when he came on. I start him over James anyway. James has to go. Along with Lingard.

He is getting back to full fitness. It also helps that he is willing to take on his man and not cower out like Sancho.

If he was as lazy as claimed he would of let the ball go to a corner and that means no goal food for thought.

Did very well, I thought. Seemed eager to impress and played cleverly and with composure. Certainly has more merit to start the next game than Sancho if it's a direct competition.

Can at least beat his man. And if anything this game showed us it was that he was NOT at fault for the second game.

I don't rate him but I'd rather play him at left wing and Sancho on the right than Dan James on the right and Sancho on the left

He came on and played better than Sancho and James combined. Not a hard feat, but my expectations were low and he surpassed them today.

Calmed the forward play down when he came on
I hope his haters give him a break now
He played very well when he came on
He isn’t a bad player at all

He offered more than Sancho when he came on. Held the ball better, was more direct and found more teammates. He created threat on the left when Sancho wasn't offering any.

It was a positive cameo from him.

Thought he actually played decent. Better than Sancho in the little time he had.

After the abuse he got last week, the game was more evidence that the lack of service for the number 9 rather than the player himself is the problem in this team. Hopefully we improve for Ronaldo.

Yeah felt like his arrival really helped and improved us. He got on the ball and slowed down the game and just gave us more control than what we had. Good link up with Shaw as well and he got back and helped out.

Regularly knock this guy, but that was a much better performance today.

Nice cameo, getting better and clearly has a role this season from the bench if he can be content with that.
