Anthony Martial has explained his eagerness to return to action ahead of RB Leipzig's visit to Old Trafford in the Champions League tonight.

Martial is two-thirds into his domestic ban but featured last week as Manchester United recorded an impressive 2-1 win at Paris Saint-Germain to kick-start the group stage.

Martial is looking forward to getting back onto the pitch tonight, whilst he's still unavailable for selection in domestic competition.

"For sure, it really does you good, especially when you’re talking about big games like these in the Champions League. That red card [against Spurs] was my first ever and it’s something that I will learn from. But it will at least allow me to work even harder in training to come back even better. 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.

Martial went on to discuss his new attacking team-mate, Edinson Cavani, who made his United debut against Chelsea at the weekend.

"He’s a really great player, he’s proved exactly that all the way through his career, and I hope that he’ll manage to help us out. It’s always a positive to have even more quality within the group and as there are always a lot of fixtures to play, when one player is rested, it will allow us to ensure that there is no drop-off in quality whatsoever. That’s especially important for the team.”
