Manchester United fans praise excellent Anthony Martial following performance against Derby

by Ben Topliss

Anthony Martial put in a superb display as Manchester United beat Derby 3-1 in the FA Cup on Friday.

Martial terrorised the Derby defence, beating his man time and time again with some clever runs and mazy footwork.

The Frenchman set up Juan Mata’s late strike with an excellent run and ball into the box and was unlucky not to score. Man United fans were full of praise for the Frenchman:



At 20 years old, it is frightening how good Martial is.

He has been United’s main attacking threat in the majority of games he has played in and Louis van Gaal has relied on him heavily to provide a creative spark over the course of the campaign.

If you are being extremely critical, there was sometimes a final lack of quality against Derby and his decision-making could have been better but that will come with time. It will be exciting to see how Martial develops.
