Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince says that Anthony Martial could become better than Chelsea's Eden Hazard.

Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince has said that Anthony Martial could become better than Chelsea's Eden Hazard if he continues on the right track.

Martial has scored five times in his last six appearances for United, with the 22-year-old bouncing back from a difficult start to the season to become a feature in Jose Mourinho's first XI.

Ahead of Sunday's Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium, Ince has lavished praise on Martial, claiming that the Frenchman could surpass Chelsea and Belgium attacker Hazard.

"No team will want to face Anthony Martial right now," Ince told Paddy Power. "He's playing like the player we all knew he was. And it's interesting to see that now Mourinho seems to have found a team and formula that works, the results are coming in.

"Martial is Man United's Eden Hazard. He's their world class attacking player, the one that can do something special and make things happen when you most need it. He's only 22, and if he carries on in this form, he'll be as good, if not better than Hazard."

Only Juventus have prevented Martial from finding the back of the net since the start of last month.
