On Wednesday night Manchester United star Anthony Martial scored a hat-trick as Sheffield United was beaten.
The 24-year-old has now improved on his club’s best-ever seasonal goal tally. France International scored a spectacular hat-trick in the Premier League clash between the two clubs, as Sheffield United was beaten 3-0 at Old Trafford. And it was a good afternoon for Manchester United star, under the guidance of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is continuing to improve.
This season Martial has scored 19 goals for Manchester United.
Meeting the powerful cross of Marcus Rashford to cover Simon Moore’s past ball in the goal, he opened the scoring in the seventh minute, as he found the net against Sheffield United three times.
Shortly before the interval Martial then got his second goal for United, before executing a chip successfully in the second half for his sixth, finishing from close range after a precise pass by Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
And now he’s improved his best-ever tally for the club which came under Louis van Gaal in the 2015/2016 season.
Making Van Gaal a replacement for Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie, the Frenchman joined the Monaco club in summer 2015.
