Manchester United hero Anthony Martial has played down the rumoured strain in his relationship with manager Jose Mourinho.

Martial spoke about Mourinho to reporters via teamtalk and that they have a player-coach relationship.

The French international forward further revealed that Manchester United will be hoping to continue their good form when they host Italian champions Juventus in a Matchday 3 clash at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

After a recent poor run of four games without win in all competitions, Manchester United have recorded four points in their last two games against Newcastle United and top four rivals.

The Red Devils had to come from behind to earn positive results in those games.

Anthony Martial was on target as Manchester United scored three goals in the second half to overturn a 2-0 deficit at halftime and secure a 3-2 victory at home to Newcastle United.

He then scored a second half brace in the 2-2 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

The hosts had taken a 21st minute lead before Martial capitalised on some woeful defending to level proceedings on 55 minutes.

He added a second goal eighteen minutes later to put his side on the way to victory only for Chelsea substitute Ross Barkley to rescue a 2-2 draw in the final minute of added time.
