​Lingard: Man Utd winger Martial will be a force this season

Manchester United winger Jesse Lingard is backing his teammate Anthony Martial to play a key role in Jose Mourinho's side this season.

The French striker, who has scored four goals this season, put in a man-of-the-match display in the 4-1 League Cup win over Burton Albion on Wednesday.

Lingard, who also scored in the game, said: "When he is running at you, any defender is going to be put on the back foot.

"If he continues to do that throughout the season, he'll be a force this season."
