Manchester United name Anthony Martial as Man of the Match following win over Derby

by Ben Topliss

Anthony Martial has received Manchester United’s Man of the Match award following his excellent display in the 3-1 win over Derby on Friday.

Martial was in imperious form at Pride Park, terrorising the Derby defence with some tricky footwork and mazy runs.

The Frenchman eventually set up Juan Mata’s late strike with a superb run and ball into the box. Man United fans voted Martial their Man of the Match after the game:

Martial, just 20 years old, has been a United player for just half a season but he has already established himself as a pivotal figure at Old Trafford.

It goes to show just how talented he is and there is no doubt whatsoever that Martial will grow into a world-class player.

Martial gets you off your seat in the same way that Cristiano Ronaldo used to do and it will be exciting to see if he can have the same impact at United as the famous Portuguese did.
