Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Anthony Martial is becoming ‘impossible to stop’ amid his propensity for winning penalties. He also explained why he thinks that United wins so many penalties after the Red Devils won their 21st penalty of the season against Copenhagen. United have scored 17 out of their 21 penalties, which is more than any other side in the top five European leagues and Bruno Fernandes has scored all seven he has taken.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said “He was sharp, Anthony’s developed throughout the season and today he was involved in the pen, I think,” Solskjaer said. “He’s impossible to stop at times when he gets the ball to his feel and drives at people. He can go either way. The only thing now is to put the ball in the net again but delighted with performance. We do play some attacking football, we do get the ball into the box quite often, and we play the ball into their feet, we’re not a team that really swing crosses in, We’ve got technical players: Mason, Juan, Anthony, Bruno, Marcus. They’re quick and I’m happy I’m not a defender against them. I’d give penalties against them myself. We will have to watch (Sevilla-Wolves) on telly and facilities are not the same as we’re used to, but that is no excuse. Every team has the same conditions, we’re used to having the best facilities around the world for recovery and preparation, we just have to make the most out of a difficult situation in conditions that are hot and humid. What time do we train, tonight we play late, it’s a strange one tomorrow morning for some of them and they probably won’t sleep for a few hours, but we’ve got six days to prepare for a game. There is not many times we have that.”
