Anthony Martial’s late winner in Manchester United’s 2-1 victory over Everton in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday may have been the best moment that the club has experienced in the last three years.
Picking up the ball with moments to go at Wembley, Martial exchanged passes with Ander Herrera before calmly firing home, sending the Man United supporters into raptures.
This picture, which emerged after the game, tells you everything you needed to know about how much the goal meant to everyone associated with the club:

The performance reminded supporters of the United of old, taking risks, getting you on the edge of your seat and winning it at the death.
In what has been so often been a season of frustration, the result felt like it could be a real turning point.
United will now take on either Crystal Palace or Watford in the final of the Cup and they will be confident of going all the way.
