Manchester United fans react to stunning Anthony Martial performance against Burnley

Manchester United Football Club piled the pressure on both Manchester City and Liverpool with a hard-fought victory away at Burnley this Sunday. The Red Devils were outstanding throughout, and more than deserved the 2-0 victory.

To my pleasant surprise, Anthony Martial was handed a rare start in the main striker spot, and my did he live up to expectations. The 21-year-old played excellently from minute one, and we saw a glimpse of that raw talent he displayed so often last season.

Martial opened the scoring as he led a wonderfully crafted counter-attack out from in his own half, before getting on the end of an Ander Herrera cross and finishing with aplomb.

It really was an outstanding all-round display, and it definitely feels like Jose Mourinho now has another guy he can trust in a time of need. Right now, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic out injured, the manager needs all the bodies he can get and we all know how talented of a player Martial is. Hopefully, this is the start of a rejuvenation of sorts, and he can become a regular fixture from now until the end of the season.
