Manchester United fans delighted with Anthony Martial’s performance vs Leeds United

Manchester United star Anthony Martial impressed fans despite not getting on the scoresheet vs Leeds United in the high scoring win.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men ran riot at Old Trafford, putting six past their fierce rivals but the French forward couldn’t net any of them.

Martial started the match as the man leading the line for United, flanked by Marcus Rashford and Daniel James, but ended it on the left-wing after making way for Edinson Cavani.

The former AS Monaco man had the chance to prove he could turn around his poor goalscoring record this season but missed the opportunity to despite having at least two clear-cut chances to convert.

However, fans have recognised how crucial Martial was in the big win and opted against criticising him, particularly since he assisted two of the six goals.

Martial was Manchester United’s top goalscorer last season but has seemingly forgotten his shooting boots this time around.

In 14 appearances and roughly 12 matches worth of minutes, the normally clinical attacker only has three goals, with just one of them coming in the league.

He does, however, have five assists and has been decent overall but there’s a need to see him return to his goalscoring ways.

Edinson Cavani has made quite an impact since his deadline day arrival at Old Trafford, but how much do you know about our other South American players, past and present? Take our quiz below to find out!
