Jose Mourinho believes three Manchester United players have helped Anthony Martial settle at the club.

Martial has impressed so far this season despite not yet starting a game.

The Frenchman has been a second-half substitute against West Ham and Swansea, scoring in both matches.

Mourinho has been impressed with the forward, and believes he is being utilised in the best possible way.

“We are using him (Martial) well and he has the right attitude,” Mourinho said of the France forward who has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford.

“We had a conversation about the future he has here and I think he has a good connection on the pitch with Paul and Romelu.

“I think he is growing in confidence and to have two periods of 20 minutes and score two goals is good for that.”

Mourinho said before the Swansea game that he has faith in Martial and expected him to be better than he was last season.

“Of course he wants to play, start for us, be selected for the national team and go to the World Cup,” Mourinho said.

“That’s good and for me it’s simple.

“I cannot play Premier League, Champions League and cups with 11 players. I need a squad.

“He is working really well and maybe the little French language group we have with Paul, Romelu and Marouane (Fellaini) is helping him.

“He is very well integrated now. They bring him up and his level has improved.”
