At this level, that needs to be finished. To do so, you make it as difficult as you can for their keeper. Putting at the near post gives the keeper a chance, not even putting in the corner as well made it easier for keeper. A natural striker puts that across towards the far post taking the keeper out of the equation. Top strikers do miss chances as you say but when they do it's almost a shock, you expect the likes of Kane to bury their chances, you don't with Martial, you hope.He did play better than lately and I guess that's a positive but pl is strange this season. Of all the top teams there seems to be a lack of quality strikers.He's been abysmal as a finisher since the end of last season, but I wouldn't say he's missed sitters. A sitter is basically empty net and no one in front of you and you find a way to screw it up, which even some of the greatests of all time have been guilty of once in a blue moon. Somehow here it means you're 1v1 with the keeper and miss, that's not a sitter; goalkeepers get paid for a reason and it's to come out on top in those situations as well.
Martial has had horrible misses, misses that you can reasonably expect to end in goals, but I don't really consider any of them actual sitters.
