Anthony Martial's first ever career hat-trick was enough for Manchester United to defeat Sheffield United 3-0 in the Premier League today.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made three changes from the side that drew 1-1 against Tottenham last week Friday. Paul Pogba, Matic and Mason Greenwood returned back to the starting lineup while James, Fred and Scott McTominay were dropped to the bench. Jagielka made his first Premier League appearance for Sheffield United since November to replace the suspended Egan. Dean Henderson is replaced by Moore as he can't face his parent club. Anthony Martial gave Manchester United the lead in the 7th minute after converting Marcus Rashford's cross to slot the ball past Moore from point-blank range.

However, Anthony Martial got his second and United's second of the game in the 44th minute after slotting the ball past Moore for the second time following a wonderful delivery from Wan-Bissaka. Manchester United headed into the break with a 2-0 win over the Blades.
