Manchester United secured a solid 1-1 draw away at CSKA Moscow yesterday night, with Louis van Gaal’s side going a goal down before levelling things up midway through the second half thanks to an excellent header from the man of the moment Anthony Martial.
The 19-year old showed how hit and miss he can be though, by giving away a silly penalty in the first half which led to the CSKA opener from Doumbia.
He resurrected things by knuckling down from that point onwards, and despite being marked out of the game for the majority, he made an excellent late run into the box and headed home fantastically from beyond the penalty spot.
As you’d expect, United fans were full of praise for Martial all over social media.

Antony Martial must eat sedatives for breakfast. Far too calm.

The thing that shocks me most about Martial is his humble personality. No celebrating. Nothing. Straight over to thank Valencia.

Might be worth playing Martial where he's more opportunity to do that sort of thing
