Very few Dream Team gaffers could have predicted Anthony Martial’s resurgence at Man United.
Just when it looked like the Frenchman’s time at Old Trafford was coming to an end, he’s rebuilt bridges that were once burnt with Jose Mourinho.

Martial has struggled to cement himself as a regular at United ever-since his big money arrival from Monaco in 2015, falling out of favour under Louis Van Gaal and experiencing equally turbulent times in Mourinho’s reign.
But the Frenchman is finally performing consistently, making him one of the most in-form players on Dream Team.
In from the cold
Having started the season on the fringes, playing just 60 minutes of United’s first four Premier League games, Martial’s career at Old Trafford was hanging in the balance.
The Frenchman failed to start a league game this season until the dramatic turnaround against Newcastle in October, when he scored to help inspire the 3-2 comeback.
Ever since that game-changing moment, Martial has gone from strength-to-strength without looking back to help make himself one of the first names on the team-sheet.
Someone who Mourinho had seemingly been happy to let go of in the January transfer window has now become one of the most important players at his disposal.
Eye for goal
The one area of his game that the forward has clearly been working on this season is his finishing.
A ruthlessness in front of goal has previously deserted him in the past but that’s not been the case this season.
Martial’s impressive return of seven goals in 14 appearances in all competitions highlights a stark improvement from his prior inefficiency in front of goal.
The Frenchman is yet to register a single assist so far this season, but is still contributing to United’s fight in other ways.
The 22-year-old’s efforts have helped him rack up an impressive 61 Dream Team points.
Martial could yet prove to be the difference once again in United’s upcoming fixtures – which include several favourable looking clashes on paper.
Home matches against Crystal Palace and Young Boys come before an away trip to Southampton at the start of December.
United then host Arsenal at Old Trafford before they entertain Claudio Ranieri’s Fulham.
The Frenchman is arguably in the form of his life right now and you would be wise not to back against him adding to his impressive tally.
Martial can be snapped up for just £3.5m, making him one of the best value for money players in Dream Team.
The Frenchman’s stock will only continue to rise on Dream Team which makes it imperative that you bring him in now.
