The Scot is under pressure to improve Manchester United’s performances following an inconsistent campaign, while Goal reported on Wednesday that Ryan Giggs is being touted as a potential replacement before the season finishes if results fail to improve.

Barkley claims both Moyes and Martinez adopt a hands-on approach during training but believes his current manager places more emphasis on tactics - and has therefore boosted the squad's confidence.

"Roberto Martinez has come in and given everyone confidence,” Barkley told Match of the Day Magazine.

“He’s a positive man and doesn’t say anything negative. I’m an Evertonian so I want the club to be up at the top end of the table and it’s great to be a part of it.

"He’s similar to David Moyes as they both like to take over the training session and be the main man. But Martinez is more tactical. We do a lot more tactical work which is good for me because I’m young and still learning."
