Manchester United star Anthony Martial impressed fans after his cameo appearance inspired his team to a 2-0 victory over Everton.
The young Frenchman has been getting back to his best of late and his goal and assist is testament to that.
United played well vs the Toffees but couldn’t find that moment of magic to actually go ahead as they struggled to deliver a result from their early domination.
It meant Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had to turn to his bench and he brought on Martial to spark that magic and it’s safe to say it worked perfectly.
The former AS Monaco man has played well this season but hasn’t been his usual clinical self so fans loved seeing him get on the scoresheet.
A goal & an assist for Anthony Martial tonight in a 31 minute cameo. Superb.

Pogba, Bruno, Cavani, Martial and Rashford all hitting form at the best possible time. I couldn't be happier.

A 'wasteful' Martial still has 9 goal contributions (4G + 5A) in 1083 mins. That's a goal or an assist every 120 mins. Obviously he's not been at his best, but he has more than contributed to our season so far.
He'll hit top form soon & as the kids say — the league ain't ready.

Martial will have to keep up his goalscoring performances if he wants to be the club’s top goalscorer this season as he was in the last.
He arguably has more competition this time around as Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes will all be gunning for that place.
Martial is still Solskjaer’s first-choice striker but at any point should his goals dry up then he will be dropped for his alternatives.
However, given his form, it doesn’t look like that will happen any time soon and fans will continue to celebrate him.
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!
