​Martial has ambitions to score for Man Utd against St Etienne

Manchester United's Anthony Martial, a former Lyon player, would love to score against old rivals St Etienne in the Europa League.

"There was a huge rivalry while I was still at Lyon," the 21 year old told the club's official website. "It was always a highly-charged atmosphere and they were usually massive games, the kind all players love to play in.

"So there will be that added competitive edge whenever I play against them.

"We know it will be a difficult match but if we play with all our quality, I think we can do good things.

"Of course, it would be great if I could score against them again, but I hope we can win the game because that's the most important thing, then it would be a bonus if I managed to grab a goal."
