Manchester United fans were delighted with Anthony Martial after he managed to get himself on the scoresheet against Watford in a thrilling 4-2 win over the London club.
The young Frenchman scored the third goal of the game to give the Red Devils a 3-0 as they headed into half time as comfortable as ever.
However, things changed at Vicarage Road during the second half as the home team managed to score twice to put some pressure on United.
Jose Mourinho’s men took their foot off the gas and got punished for it but thankfully Jesse Lingard eased fans’ hearts by scoring a beautiful solo goal.
Supporters did not forget about Martial though, whose finish was typically ice cold as he continued his stunning form this season.
Martial brilliant tonight. Put him in a Monaco shirt playing like this last season and PSG would’ve offered £100m for him

Martial doesn't get enough credit for his finishing. One of the best at United.

Anthony Martial scored eight goals last season and has as many already. Looked much more comfortable with Lukaku than Rashford did. #mufc

Mourinho celebrated only Martial’s goal.
Safe to say he’s joined Martial FC

Based on this game, Martial should start up-top on his own against Arsenal and Lingard comes in.

Partnering Romelu Lukaku up front in a 3-5-2 formation, Anthony seemed to work better with the Belgian than Marcus Rashford.
The English star started the season perhaps favoured a little more by Mourinho but recent games have seen the former AS Monaco man feature more often from the beginning of matches.
It’s no coincidence as Martial has been knocking on the door for a while, coming off the bench and impressing consistently enough to convince his manager to give him more game time.
Having admitted that personal problems affected him last season, the dazzling striker has clearly put those issues to bed this time around.
