Ince believes a welcome return to form over recent weeks should bring an end to those debates, with a man who missed out on World Cup glory in Russian Federation now back in the France squad and offering enough to suggest that he could become the finest deep-lying forward in the Premier League.

The forward has scored five goals in their last four Premier League appearances and he often looked threatening against Juventus on Wednesday night.

The Chilean's arrival coincided with a loss of playing time for the French worldwide, who lost a place in France's squad at this summer's World Cup.

Mourinho, who many observers felt wanted to let the player go, nevertheless feels his challenging approach is the reason behind Martial's recent upturn in form as the talent was already there.

"I knew that for him to become a really top player, he needed to overcome some barriers that I put on the road for him".

However, the France coach warned that a lack of consistency remains a problem for the attacker, who remains immensely talented, and stressed it is up to the player to sustain his performance levels for the rest of the season and take his game to the next level. "If he is there, it's also because some players are injured".

"What he does today with Manchester is closer to what you can expect from him on a regular basis in terms of commitment and efficiency".

"He is there because of some injuries but he could have been on the list even without it".

"It's always been Anthony's problem". It depends on him but there is a lot more to come and he has been showing more over the past few weeks with his club.

The same article claims that the 22-year-old recently rejected a deal estimated to be worth £160,000-a-week but the former Lyon forward wants to remain at Manchester United.

"He has to fight for it and be consistent for the rest of the season".
