'World class' Martial wins Man of the Match
Manchester United striker Anthony Martial was on the scoresheet and on top of our Man of the Match poll following his superb double in the 2-2 draw with Chelsea.
Martial was the first player to score two for United on Chelsea's patch since another no.11, Ryan Giggs, grabbed a brace in the 5-4 League Cup defeat back in October 2012.
February in that same calendar year was also the last time a Reds star found the net twice in a Premier League game at the Bridge, when Wayne Rooney fired in two penalties in a thrilling 3-3 draw.
“He is fantastic, he is a world-class player,”declared Young, who was also on the poll shortlist.
“To be honest I am not sure why he is not in the France squad, but that is down to the French manager.For me, I see him day in, day out and he is some talent. He is unbelievable and he has shown his finishing [ability] day in, day out at training. He is a fantastic player and he got the goals today.
Anthony Martial has scored more goals (40) for the Reds than any team-mate since he joined the club in September 2015.
His tally now includes these four doubles:
20 Sep 2015 Southampton away | Won 3-2
10 May 2016 West Ham United away | Lost 2-3
30 Nov 2016 West Ham United home | Won 4-1
20 Oct 2018 Chelsea away | Drew 2-2
