The 20-year-old scored his first goal of the season during United’s 1-1 draw with Stoke City on Sunday.

The Frenchman started the season as first choice on the left-wing but has been dropped in recent weeks due to a combination of a loss of form and a concussion injury.

Martial was United’s best player last season but the forward split from the mother of his child in April after allegations about his private life.

According to the Guardian, Mourinho believes off-field distractions have hindered Martial’s play this term but the 53-year-old is increasingly confident that he’s getting back to his best.

The Portuguese boss is a firm admirer of Martial but he’s favoured the likes of Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford in recent weeks after questioning the Frenchman’s focus in training.
