Anthony Martial desperate to break Man Utd duck with Edinson Cavani lurking

Anthony Martial insists he doesn't feel threatened by the arrival at Manchester United of Edinson Cavani.

Cavani, 33, has joined United on a free transfer after leaving PSG in June and will provide strong competition for places in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 's attack.

The Uruguayan international produced an impressive cameo appearance in United's drab goalless draw with Chelsea last weekend.

France international Martial has still to score in nine appearances for both club and country this season.

The 24-year-old has struggled to find his best form and has been suspended for United's recent games following his red card in the 6-1 drubbing from Tottenham earlier this month.

But Martial believes the arrival of Cavani is a "positive" – despite the new forward threatening his place in the side.

Martial insists he is focussing on his own form as he prepares to return to United's side for the Champions League group clash with RB Leipzig tomorrow night.

He believes Cavani can help him reach a higher and more consistent level.

The Frenchman said: "I still haven't scored yet this season.

"But I know that as and when I get off the mark with one, everything will be fine.

“So, it's down to me to keep putting in a big effort in training and to then show everybody the real Anthony Martial."
