Louis van Gaal on the win, reveals what he likes most about Anthony Martial


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal says his side will fight for the title after the 3-2 away win at Southampton.

The Red Devils had to work extremely hard to battle past the Saints with striker Anthony Martial again the hero for his team, much to the delight of the Dutchman.

"It's a fantastic result away at Southampton and I think we have made a statement that we shall compete for the title," van Gaal said.

"We were ahead against Swansea City and we were also ahead against PSV, but we controlled the match better and we played to kill the game.

"After the Champions League match against PSV, our players were tired and you could see that in the last 15 minutes, but I liked the way we did it because we controlled, in the second half, the game for 30 minutes. But the last 15 minutes were difficult.

"He [Anthony Martial] is always an attacking point for a lot of players and that I like in him.

"He is always running in behind and that I like also. But he is an attacking point and he keeps the ball so he is very important for us already.

"You cannot say he is ahead of schedule. He has the talent to do it but the Premier League has a lot of rhythm and there is a lot of physical influence from the defenders, but he is also a strong guy.

"We can expect maybe more consistency that I had expected, but you never know. We are only three games in."
