Manchester United have done it again. That’s back-to-back 4-0 victories for the Red Devils, and Jose Mourinho must be so happy following that display. Swansea City stayed resilient for as long as possible, but in the end, United’s pressure told and the game became comfortable.
Once again, Anthony Martial had to settle for a spot on the substitutes bench, but the hunger and desire is there from the French attacker. He was brought on to kill the game off, and my did he do exactly that.
The 21-year-old became a key part of our counter-attack, and he completely finished Swansea off with a stunning goal as he cut inside and finished with aplomb.
It’s now a case of when do you give Martial the start? If he keeps performing like this with limited minutes on the field, surely it cannot be long before Mourinho caves in and names him in the starting XI?
For me, as much as he made an impression, I’m just not sure who you drop. Marcus Rashford was pretty good despite the fact that the end product was lacking and Juan Mata just makes us tick. I’m glad I don’t have to make those kind of decisions.
As you’d imagine, the Twitterverse was absolutely buzzing after that display from the Frenchman.
