Manchester United fans praise Anthony Martial’s performance vs FC Copenhagen

Manchester United fans couldn’t contain their happiness with Anthony Martial following his man of the match performance vs FC Copenhagen.

The two teams faced off in the quarter-finals of the Europa League with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men scraping by 1-0.

United won thanks to a penalty scored by Bruno Fernandes that was won by Martial in extra-time.

The talented Frenchman has been talismanic for his side this season, particularly since the resumption of football last month.

Martial has been trusted by Solskjaer to lead the line this campaign and it’s safe to say he has repaid that faith in full.

Martial should be considered amongst the contenders for the season with the likes of Bruno and Marcus Rashford, though there’s plenty of competition for once.

The only remaining weakness to his game is his tendency to pick up a knock here or there during the season.

If he can remain fully fit all campaign long, there’s no reason why he can’t break into the 30 goal mark.

Martial has already managed 23 goals across all competitions this season as he’s gone from strength to strength.

Calls for Manchester United to find a better striker to lead the line have certainly quietened down, particularly of late.

Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood have scored over 60 goals between them so far this season. But how much do you know about other strikers who played for the Red Devils over the years? Take our quiz below to find out.
