Anthony Martial is desperate for more starts at Manchester United after struggling to oust Marcus Rashford from the first team.

The Frenchman has six goals in 16 appearances this season but feels he could contribute more if he was not always coming off the bench.

Martial complained that it was tough to get going in games when you come on as a substitute, but added that he was nonetheless happy with his performances.

"It’s easier to start the game," Martial told SFR Sport . "When you come off the bench, the other players are warmed up, they’re totally in the game, and you have to get into it straight away. I prefer to start the game, I have more time to get myself into the game.
