Manchester United star Anthony Martial makes history.
Manchester United secured a 3-0 win in first home game since the Premier League resumed at Old Trafford against Sheffield United, having played 1 -1 draw with Tottheham Hotspur last Friday.
Pogba started in a Midfiled three along with Bruno Fernandes and Nemanja Matic against Chris Wilder's side, but it was forward Anthony Martial who stole the show.
Martial started on the score sheet with a brace in the first first before wrapping up his treble 16 minutes from time as United dominated from start to finish with Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes starting together for the first time.
The 24 years old who is the recipient of 2015 Golden Boy Award for the best under-21 player in Europe, Martial has now recorded his first Senior hat-trick. Also the first time a United player has scored three in a game in the post Sir Alex Ferguson era.
This means since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson no other player has scored an hat trick for the club. The last player to score a Premier League hat-trick for United was Robin Van Persie in 2014.
United Boss also gave his post match reaction:
“At the near post he showed composure and I think, as I said, the first goal was vital the way he turns and gets himself into a position to score from Marcus' cross. [I'm] very pleased with that.
“He’s getting more and more into those position he could have had one at Spurs - a great turn and finish and a great save, he’s in good form.”
However with this win against the Chris side United boost their Champions League qualification hopes, the three points also puts the pressure on Chelsea who are taking on Manchester City on Thursday.
The Red Devils boss is also confident that his team can give more after today's performance. View pictures in App save up to 80% data. View pictures in App save up to 80% data. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
