Manchester United fans were delighted with Anthony Martial‘s impressive performance against Middlesbrough at Old Trafford.
The Frenchman had been dropped from the starting XI for club and country earlier in the campaign, but has worked hard to fight for his place in the side, leaving with a brilliant goal to his name.
He returned with a clear impact against Middlesbrough and it was brilliant to see him back in action as the Martial supporters loved him for, creating chances, drifting through defences and producing entertaining football.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance on Monday afternoon.
Two moments of real quality from Anthony Martial. Then the referee somehow manages to find a way to deny Ibrahimovic a fine goal… #MUNMID

Martial finished last campaign as United’s top goalscorer and although he hasn’t had the same impact under Mourinho, he’s definitely showcased glimpses of his ability. He completely deserved the goal which helped United clawed back the game and it was an incredible showcase of talent.
He injects a serious attacking threat to the side and combined with the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, can get the ball forward and into attacking positions with ease.
The Frenchman has a big career ahead at Old Trafford even though his agent confirmed they had explored the option of a move to Sevilla, hopes are he can maintain his current form in order to cement his place in the side under Mourinho.
