He has to show more desire and passion at times. He’s got good feet and a lovely first touch. “He’s got blistering pace too but you don’t see it enough. He wants the ball to his feet but he should mix it up a bit more.” Martial had to be content with a substitute appearance during United’s 3-1 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday, but will likely return to Solskjaer’s starting XI for a crucial midweek clash with West Ham. The Red Devils can guarantee Champions League qualification if they earn earn at least a point against West Ham and then avoid defeat to Leicester City on the final day of the season. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 center_img Andy Cole is not sure what Anthony Martial’s favoured position is, and has called on the Manchester United forward to “show more desire and passion” on the pitch. United snapped Martial up as a teenage prospect while he was on the books of Monaco in 2015, forking out £54 million ($69m) to lure him to Old Trafford. The Frenchman has since recorded 70 goals and 37 assists in 217 appearances in all competitions, but only showed glimpses of his frightening potential under Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho. Martial has stepped his game up another level since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s arrival as head coach, having been trusted to lead the line following the departure of Romelu Lukaku. The former Monaco star has broken the 20-goal barrier for the first time in his career this season and has been the most prolific frontman in the Premier League since last month’s return from lockdown. The 24-year-old has found the net six times in his last seven top-flight outings while serving as the focal point in a United side now on the verge of a top-four finish. Cole isn’t getting too carried away with Martial’s recent record, though, as he believes the France international has taken far too long to start justifying his hefty price tag.Advertisementlast_img read more

Indian Premier League Shikhar Dhawan has no regrets on missing out on ton, says team win was important

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Indian Premier League News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. highlights New Delhi: Shikhar Dhawan displayed his mettle by blasting an unbeaten 97*, his highest score in Twenty20s as he helped Delhi Capitals win by seven wickets against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens on Friday. Dhawan’s knock and his 105-run stand with Rishabh Pant (46) helped Delhi Capitals surge to the fourth position in the points table. Dhawan had a golden chance to score his maiden ton but Colin Ingram smashed a six and that meant the left-hander was just three runs short of the landmark. Speaking in the post-match presentation, Dhawan did not rue the fact that he missed out on a century and stressed the team victory was far more important.“I knew it could be my first T20 hundred but the team goal is more important, hence I took that single rather than taking a huge risk. It’s totally opposite here compared to Delhi,” Dhawan said. The left-hander’s partnership with Pant was the key in Delhi Capitals registering a win against a Kolkata Knight Riders side who had dominated at home and also against other opponents in IPL 2019. Pant spoke about the plan with Dhawan as to how they wanted to approach the target.“Take the game deep and complete the game as soon as possible. In T20, when you are chasing, you need to control and pace your innings in such a way that you could complete the match in 18-20 overs. I don’t focus on what the bowlers are thinking. I just focus on my stuff. We (him and Dhawan) were just talking about taking the match deep,” Pant said.Dhawan said the pitch at the Eden Gardens was different as compared to the Feroz Shah Kotla, which drew flak from head coach Ricky Ponting. “It’s totally opposite here compared to Delhi. I was telling Dinesh (Karthik) the same thing. It’s a good wicket to bat on. Good for the bowlers as well as the batsmen, makes it interesting. In Delhi we have to adapt ourselves, hence we got to have that skill. I really enjoyed in the first six overs but I knew I had to stay till the end. I was getting the right thoughts and I had to take the game deep. Rishabh is such a big hitter he can always hit it out of the park,” Dhawan said.Delhi Capitals will take on Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Rajiv Gandhi International stadium in Hyderabad while Kolkata Knight Riders will take on table-toppers Chennai Super Kings at the Eden Gardens.center_img Delhi Capitals registered their second win against Kolkata Knight Riders in IPL 2019.Shikhar Dhawan’s 97* is his highest individual score in Twenty20s.Delhi Capitals are in the fourth position in IPL 2019.last_img read more
