Anthony Martial has immediately transformed opinion of himself among the press and fans thanks to his debut performance against Liverpool.

We’ll be talking about that goal he scored in front of the Stretford End for years to come and for a 19-year-old who was getting so much stick for a price he had no control of, it was the perfect way to silence his critics.

Now, instead of being the unknown entity from France, Martial has become a player who has shown he can finish in high pressure situations with the calmness of a brain surgeon and that will raise expectations of him.

Louis van Gaal didn’t confirm whether he would start against PSV in the Champions League but did say he’s been impressed with him in training.

We’ve been asking you whether you think he will start against PSV but for the kid himself, he’ll probably be bursting to get on the pitch again.

There’s nothing better than seeing a footballer let the football do the talking and Martial will want to continue to build on the momentum which he gave himself on a Saturday night at Old Trafford that won’t ever be forgotten.
