Video: Anthony Martial’s excellent assist against Derby

by Ben Topliss

Anthony Martial showed what a prodigious young talent he is in Manchester United’s 3-1 win over Derby on Friday.

Not for the first time this season, the Frenchman was Man United’s main attacking threat as he terrorised the Derby defence.

Martial was unlucky not to score for United but he had a pivotal role in the game’s last meaningful piece of action as his superb run and ball into the box led to a late Juan Mata strike:



Martial continues to astound United supporters with some imperious displays despite his tender age.

He is arguably the most exciting young player in world football right now and the £36m that United paid for him in the summer is starting to look like a snip.

The Frenchman is already a crucial player for United and it will be interesting and exciting to see him develop at Old Trafford in the coming years.
