Manchester United manager, Erik Ten Hag, has singled out his forwards for praise following their 2-2 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday.

The Red Devils threw away a two-goal lead to draw with their Premier League rivals in a preseason friendly in Perth.

One of the main positives from United’s tour has been Anthony Martial’s performances.

Martial appeared to have played his last game for United when he went out on loan to Sevilla in January, but he has started every game on tour and scored three goals.

“I think in general our front men, our forward players did well,” Ten Hag said when asked about Martial.

“They were really well connected, I think that was really a weapon. I think it is really difficult to defend. We have a lot of movement, we have skills and they can finish.”
