Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic believes Anthony Martial's Premier League hat-trick against Sheffield United will not be the Frenchman's last.

The Blades had no answer as United cruised to a 3-0 victory at Old Trafford to boost their chances of claiming a place in next season's Champions League.

And while heaping praise on the striker, Matic pointed out that there is plenty of competition for places in Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's team as they look to finish the season on a high.

I think that he's now at a good age, that he has more experience.

As well as an interesting few weeks in their league campaign, the Red Devils have an FA Cup quarter-final at Norwich to look forward to on Saturday.

United are unbeaten in 13 games in all competitions and Martial's hat-trick took the 24-year-old's tally for the season to 19.

Matic heaped praise on his team-mate after his match-winning performance and is confident he can continue to improve.

"I think that he's now at a good age, that he has more experience," he said. "He played on a high level already for many years, so I'm sure that the time in front of us he will show his capacity.

"I'm very happy for him that he scored three goals. It's not easy to score three goals in any league, especially the Premier League.

"They have quality like every player in our squad so they have to do the best for the team together when they are on the pitch of course. I am happy to see them playing and as time goes on they will be better and better."

United are 1.44 to win at Norwich, who are 7.50 to win the Carrow Road clash. The draw is available at 4.33.

The Red Devils are 2.75 to win the FA Cup.
