Anthony Martial was presented with the September PFA Fans’ Player of the Month award at Old Trafford on Sunday after his fantastic start at Manchester United.
The 19-year-old scored against Liverpool on his debut and followed it up with a brace away at Southampton, so it’s a richly deserved award for a player who is continuing to impress with his consistency.
Martial was given the award by a competition winner at Old Trafford ahead of the Manchester derby this weekend:

It says a lot about Martial that he was more interested in getting down the tunnel and preparing for the derby than celebrating his own achievements with the award. He’s somebody who isn’t distracted by success is he? Concentrating and focusing on his football is what Martial wants to do.
If United’s attackers had all played as well as Martial against Manchester City, he may have been able to celebrate the day with a win but unfortunately it wasn’t to be.
