Seven years without an Hatrick for the Red Devils,the French man Anthony Martial is a divisive figure among the Red Devils fans, who has turned into very vital player for Manchester United.
The former Monaco forward can be magical one week and then goes missing on the next, which frustrates United fans and the manager as well.
On Wednesday evening against Sheffield United, the French star produced the best performances ever in United shirt, given the striker’s age.
The forward opened the scoring with a tap in shot from within the six yard box, showing fantastic attacking position, to turn home the English forward Marcus Rashford’s bullet cross. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
Martial doubled the lead for the Red Devils later in dying minutes of the first-half with a simple sweeping finish from about 10 yards out, converting the young right back Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s cross just before half-time.
The first half goals were so decisive in the game as they took the Red Devils stranglehold on possession and gave it a presence on the scoresheet. Manchester United have played well against smaller clubs who have sat in and defended deep but have had no incision in their play to break them down.
Manchester United had suffered the start of this season, however, since the signing of Bruno Fernandez, Manchester United look like a more competitive team than it was at the start of the season. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
The French winger Martial who played as center forward since the league resumed,scored a sublime third goal, lifting it over the goalkeeper with the outside of his foot after a sweet pass from Marcus Rashford.
It was a goal with some beauty to make an historic hatrick, but the skillfull foward has never had difficulties scoring those kinds of goals.
Manchester United increased their chances of qualifying for Champions league next season,with Ole Gunnar also impressed with how his team is developing.
Marcos Rashford was another player to watch,he provided great movement and speed,which gave Sheffield United defenders difficulties to deal with United forwards.
