(Video) Martial blazes opportunity to equalise against Liverpool over the bar

Anthony Martial came very close to equalising against Liverpool.

Manchester United haven’t created many chances on goal today so you’d wish they would be more clinical when the opportunities arise.

Liverpool opened the scoring in the first-half after a header from Virgil van Dijk, who was also the reason a second goal was ruled out after fouling David de Gea.

Martial looks most likely to score a goal for United today, but he should have put this chance away.

Watch the clip below, courtesy of Sky Sports:

Martial receives a good ball after cutting in from the left. He shamefully wasted the opportunity by putting too much power behind his shot.

He needs to be more composed in these positions if he’s to lead the line for United in the future.

The need for a top striker remains.
