Anthony Martial has had a relatively muted couple of performances for Manchester United in recent games as teams have become all too aware of his threat and simply marked him out of the game with multiple defenders.
West Brom adopted a very similar tactic but the tricky Frenchman proved his worth right at the end with a breakaway attack that led to Man United’s second after he was brought down in the box with a penalty.
Martial certainly could have had a goal himself in the game as he had a couple of chances but fans were overall very happy with his performance:
Lingard and Martial have taken on all responsibility for providing some excitement #MUFC

It was fantastic to see Martial sprinting at full pelt in the 90th minute wasn’t it? He’s a determined kid and that comes across in everything he does.
Hopefully he can enjoy a strong international break and get plenty of game time with Karim Benzema not in the France squad, so he can come back for the away game against Watford and get back among the goals.
