The Manchester United striker enjoyed the most prolific season of his career at Old Trafford under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last term, scoring 23 goals in all competitions.
His form earned him a recall to the national squad, where he is hoping to impress France boss Didier Deschamps ahead of next summer’s rearranged European Championships.
And Lloris, who captained the France side to World Cup glory in 2018, praised Martial for his increased confidence but challenged his international teammate to show more consistency throughout the season.
“I don’t know if it’s related to his relationship with Solskjaer, we can see he is more confident,” Lloris told reporters ahead of France’s Nations League clash against Croatia.
“There is a very good understanding with the players around him at Manchester United.
“He will be expected, he will have to confirm his good season.
“He is committed to doing well for five, 10 minutes, a half or a whole game.”

France boss Deschamps has also been impressed by the former Monaco star’s improvement.
“He’s capable of playing in the wing also, but in Manchester he’s really a number nine,” he said.
“He may not have the typical profile of a centre-forward although he has that versatility there. In recent months he has gained in regularity and constancy.”
