Juan Mata sung the praises of Manchester United star Anthony Martial after the Red Devils won 3-0 at Fulham on Saturday.

Martial and Paul Pogba were arguably the standout players for United in a dominant display, with the latter receiving the Man of the Match award.

His countryman Martial – who also notched a goal and an assist – was the target of praise from Mata, who believes that he should get the ball as much as possible.

“If we speak about Paul and Anthony: fantastic players, great goals – the goal from Anthony today… only a few players can do that,” the 30-year-old told beIN Sports after the victory.

“I just love Anthony. The better he plays, the more we win. I always say the same, but it’s true: give the ball to Anthony and we will win!

“You always believe you can do it when you play for a club like Manchester United. It seems like nothing is impossible. It’s seemed very far [away], fourth position, third position, but we are there now.

“We did a really difficult job but we know that we’re not there yet because the Premier League has not ended.

“We want to keep up this good performance, this good run, everyone playing, everyone contributing to the game. I think we are very strong as a group and we are showing it. Hopefully we can keep going until the end.

“There is fantastic chemistry between all of us, the players and the manager,” Mata continued.

“Since he came the only thing he’s tried is to make us confident, that we can beat anyone, that we can play very good and get the results and we’re doing so.

“So we are very happy obviously because when you when ten games you are very happy and high on confidence.

“Now we face another challenge, which is a Champions League match with PSG. It will be very difficult but hopefully we can keep going.

“Everyone is contributing to the team, everyone is leaving their egos aside and just wanting to give their best for the team whenever we play and I think against PSG we will do the same.

“Whoever plays will try their best. We are feeling strong as a group we are thinking about ‘us’ and not about only ‘me’ and I think that’s very good to achieve our goals until the end.”
