Manchester United continued with their impressive run by demolishing Sheffield United at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils put on top performance against The Blades coming out winners in a 3-0 scoreline but missing a lot of chances. Rashford's miss would have added the tally with Nigerian Striker Odion Ighalo also missing a chance in the dying minutes of second half.

United are now in a run of 13 match unbeaten in all competitions with Red Devils failing to suffer a defeat since early January when they lost to Burnley.

French Striker Anthony Martial was surely the man of the match as the 24 year old bragged a hat-trick and becoming the first Manchester United player to score a hat-trick since Sir Alex Ferguson era.

The last Manchester United player to score a hatrick was Robin Van Persie with the Dutchman's hat-trick winning United the 13th title in 2013 against Aston Villa. Since then, no Manchester United player have ever scored a hat-trick and finally Anthony Martial has become that player.

That was not the only Frenchman's record as he has also managed to surpass his best tally. Martial has now scored 14 goals in a single season with few games still left. This surpasses his 2015-16 tally where he scored 11 goals.

Anthony Martial has blown hot and cold but his today's performance will make Manchester United fans fall in love with him.
