We all know that Anthony Martial is a special talent, and my were we treated to an absolute master-class from the French starlet on Tuesday night. The 21-year-old absolutely ripped CSKA Moscow to shreds, to Manchester United’s delight, of course.
When he’s on song, there is absolutely no stopping the former AS Monaco man, and Moscow bared the brunt of a sensational display. Martial ended the game with one goal and three assists to his name which is absolutely incredible in any Champions League fixture.
The partnership he’s forming with Romelu Lukaku is a special one, and throw Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcus Rashford into the mix – and you have a front four that’ll scare any back line.
Martial has been on and off the bench at the start of this season, but credit where it’s due, he’s had an impact in pretty much every match he has played in so far.
He’s just an excellent footballer to watch. He’s the type of player who’ll get the crowd excited with his sheer on-ball genius, and tonight was one of those occasions. As you’d imagine, Twitter was absolutely loving it.

Martial is ruthless. These men just got back from driving tractors and picking up snow, and he's making them pick bodies now.
