Anthony Martial is doing no harm to his reputation of being the hyped sensation, everyone has been talking about since his 36million move to Manchester United. After scoring inside 20 minutes on his debut against Liverpool, the 19-year old striker was handed his first start today against Southampton. It took Martial just 36 minutes to score his second Premier League goal in as many game.
The goal could not have come at a better time for Manchester United as they were trailing 1-0 to a great Southampton side who had outplayed Van Gaal’s men almost the entire first half. United were taking their patient approach in find a way in to Saints defense.
The goal happened from a slack clearance from Jose Fonte and Morgan Schneiderlin headed the ball back in the danger area, Juan Mata tried to control the ball when Fonte tried to pinch the ball and it landed at the feet of Martial. The young striker did not make any mistake in calmly controlling the ball and slotting the ball home in a composed manner.
Certainly his first two goals have given everyone a fair indication of why United went and splashed all that money in signing the talented French striker. Martial started this game as United’s leading striker despite Rooney returning from injury. It goes to show how much Van Gaa; trust his new signing despite playing only few minutes for Manchester United.
