Anthony Martial enjoyed a fruitful cameo from the substitute’s bench as Manchester United were knocked out of the Capital One Cup by Middlesbrough on Wednesday evening.
Martial replaced the disappointing Memphis Depay after 70 minutes and immediately looked to get his side on the front foot.
Unfortunately, the Frenchman missed a golden opportunity in extra time to win the game for Man United.
Despite the result, United supporters liked what they saw from Martial during the clash:
Martial is a fantastic player!

We would have won it already had Martial started

Martial hasnt even been on long as he has already impressed

Martial has been terrific so far. Those runs and turns

Martial really does look like the real deal. He has gone from strength to strength since his summer move from Monaco and is showing no signs of slowing down.
Naturally, he would have been gutted to exit the Capital One Cup but has shown during his time at Old Trafford that he is not the type of character to dwell on disappointment. There is no doubt that he will be as lively as ever when United face Crystal Palace this weekend.
