Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is glad to see Anthony Martial gaining confidence for Manchester United after putting in “extra work” on the training ground.

The Frenchman has been in good form recently, scoring in each of Man Utd‘s last three matches against Chelsea, Club Brugge and Watford.

And Solskjaer was thrilled to see his striker scoring different types of goals and showing off his undoubted talent.

“Anthony is still learning. He’s played in a wide role for many, many years, but he’s getting more and more used to playing as a no.9 now,”Solskjaer told talkSPORT.

“He’s been training really well and doing extra work. He’s playing every game and becoming fitter and fitter.

“As a result he’s becoming more and more confident scoring different type of goals.

“This week he scored three different goals, one as a centre forward/no.9 [against Chelsea] with a header.

“The one in Brugge was all about hard work and being an opportunist after picking up on a mistake. But he did all the work himself.

“And today that is the Anthony we have always known, the more who has more skill than most of the players around.”
