Manchester United’s £36m summer signing Anthony Martial is eligible to make his Premier League debut in this month’s huge match against fierce rivals Liverpool.
September is going to be a massive month for the 19-year-old.
Martial, who has 12 Under-21 caps to his name, could earn his first senior international cap for France.

The world’s most expensive teenager has been called up by Didier Dechamps for the forthcoming friendlies against Portugal and Serbia, taking place on Friday and Monday respectively.
Martial is then in line to make his first appearance for the Red Devils on September 12 when Liverpool visit Old Trafford.
He is unlikely to start, as captain Wayne Rooney is almost certain to lead the attack against Brendan Rodgers.
Martial’s first United start should come later in September, either against PSV Eindhoven, Southampton or Ipswich Town.
