And the former Monaco forward has admitted he wants to be starting games sooner rather than later.
His aim seems exclusively to be to frustrate his opponents, hope to make it to half time level and then maybe consider trying to nick a win late on or, more often than not, simply look to shut the game down at 0-0.
After a rousing start to the season, United have struggled to keep up pace with neighbors Man City, picking up only 4 points in their last 4 games.
Unfortunately, the same can not be said about today's Manchester United, under the pragmatic and self-proclaimed "special one", Jose Mourinho.
"Ander Herrera is the kind of player I have to push away because he wants to speak with me all the time". It is believed that Shaw will be one of the first to depart if the Old Trafford side do decide to cut players in January.
"I think it's about us getting back to Old Trafford for that game and put on a performance that the fans can be proud of".
"I don't know where you get these kind of stories but yes, I am happy".
And despite his competition with Rashford, Martial has embraced his role on the team and is confident in his abilities. But outside of that, I'm reserved; I don't show my emotions too much.
"It's unfortunate there's now an global break but I think we'll have to regroup and in our next game make sure we put on a performance to rectify this".
Manchester United players will be eager to prove themselves after the worldwide break as they head into it with a 1-0 loss to Premier League champions Chelsea, midfielder Ander Herrera said. This attacking trident could potentially terrorize Europe for years to come if they meshed. It's going well. I'd like to play more - that's going to come through my performances. "I think that will be how things will go well".
Rewind to 2008-09; and Manchester United were the team to watch, the team to beat. And with more playing time, his role and abilities will only increase.
