Louis van Gaal has identified Julian Draxler as a player to be wary of when Manchester United face Wolfsburg in the Champions League on Wednesday night, as per the club’s official website.
“Yes, not only for the Champions League but to maintain our top position in the league because we have to play Arsenal away, it’s the most hard game but previous year we won there so we have hope”, the Dutch manager explained.
Second, United have scored nine times in the league since bringing Martial to Old Trafford – also among the best in the EPL – with three of the goals coming from the 19-year-old starlet.

Earlier, Martial had helped Rooney by setting him up for the “knee in” that ended his Premier League drought.
“I am very pleased with the performance of Anthony because he is not only a goalscorer”, he said. “We will watch that because it is very important”.
United was in 13th spot at the same stage last campaign, but after seeing his team take advantage of Manchester City’s 4-1 defeat at Tottenham, van Gaal was a happy man.
Despite spending more than £250m in the transfer market since taking over at Old Trafford, Van Gaal is adamant that he will continue to alter his squad in his bid to win trophies.
At the time, Mourinho was criticised for selling the player to a direct rival; however, his title win last season would’ve answered all his critics.
“They have not really had anyone for quite a while with that ability to make decent runs and with that explosive pace to stretch teams”.
“Personally, I like playing at the Emirates, and I’m sure it’s going to be a good game…” I went home feeling happy because the team approached the game with the maximum respect for the opponent despite them not being in the Premier League, and from the first minute we were determined to win.
