Anthony Martial was the hat trick hero tonight after a comfortable victory for Manchester United playing against Sheffield United. Sheffield looked to be a sizable test for united after drawing 3 all in the reverse fixture early in the season, but Manchester United's line up was just too much for them. The long awaited partnership of Pogba and Fernandes made its debut with Matic playing as the centre defensive midfielder. Martial opened the account in the first 7 minutes of the match and finished the first half with another goal. He banged his third goal in the 77th minute, to register his first hat trick of his professional career as a footballer.

Van Persie was also the hat trick hero for United that day sinking Villa to claim the Premier League title. This also means the last time a Manchester United player scored a hat trick was when Sir Alex Ferguson was still the coach. A great way to score your first hat trick.
