Manchester United fans delighted with Anthony Martial’s cameo against Swansea City

Manchester United fans were once again full of praise for Anthony Martial during their side’s 4-0 win over Swansea City on Saturday.

The Frenchman sent a big statement to Jose Mourinho last weekend by coming on and claiming a goal and an assist against West Ham United inside ten minutes.

And he was at it again in Wales, playing a key role in Romelu Lukaku’s goal before gliding into the box slotting home an elegant finish to complete an emphatic 4-0 win.

Supporters were full of praise for the 21-year-old for once again making a supreme impact from the bench.

With 20 minutes left, Swansea had to come up with something. They committed a few more men forward, switched to four at the back, but their late onslaught – having spent most of the game without the ball – lacked bite. Paul Clement’s men were tired and Mourinho smelled blood.

On came Martial and Swansea eventually caved in. His introduction was tantamount to that final rock causing a creaky bridge to collapse. The youngster, alongside Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba, was too slick, too menacing and ultimately too clinical for the hapless hosts.

It was a cameo typifying exactly what supporters want to see from their forwards this season: ruthlessness, dedication, innovation and goals.
