Manchester United fans were thrilled with Anthony Martial‘s impressive performance against St Etienne on Thursday night in the Europa League clash.
The Frenchman has struggled for form this campaign as he’s been in and out of the starting line-up, but has returned in perfect fashion as he scored a goal against Watford and set one up earlier in the week.
He was incredible once again against St Etienne as he terrorised Christophe Galtier’s defence, drifting through defenders, creating chances and showcasing his brilliant skillset time and time again.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance.
Pogba & Martial the only 2 players that have turned up tonight. #MUFC

I don't understand how Martial dribbles with the ball barely leaving his foot at full speed🤔🔥

Martial runs like a young Rooney. So good to watch. Best young talent in the world.

Martial was by far United’s best attacker and it was wonderful to see him oozing with confidence as he went on incredible runs tearing St Etienne’s defence apart.
Jose Mourinho will also be pleased after leaving Martial out of the squad due to his poor defensive work, with the Frenchman tracking back on numerous occasions to help United see out the lead.
Man United now face Blackburn in the FA Cup Fifth round on Sunday afternoon and Martial has done everything he possibly could to guarantee his place in the team.
