A selection of Manchester United fans have heaped praise on Anthony Martial following his splendid second-half goal in the 3-0 Premier League win over Watford on Sunday.
The Frenchman has been in fine form since the return from the winter break and he was able to score for the third game on the bounce when he came up against Nigel Pearson’s side.
Martial has experienced a mixed season by his standards leading the line but against the Hornets, he scored the club’s second goal in superb fashion with a lovely dink over goalkeeper Ben Foster from an acute angle.
Prior to his effort, he showed good composure to keep the possession in the close proximity of three Hornets defenders and his performance has definitely impressed a number of United fans on Twitter.
Omg what a brilliant brilliant goal by Martial! Fantastic! #mufc

Three goals in a week for Martial and each goal has displayed his ability to score different goals as a number 9. A leaping header, a one on one finish and a piece of individual brilliance today. He’s had a solid week.

Martial has proven me wrong after this week. Three solid performances. Three good goals. Hope it can continue. #MUFC

Three goals in three matches. Martial might be struggling but never ever count him out.

Prior to the winter break, Martial failed to score for three Premier League matches on the bounce and during that period, he was guilty of squandering a couple of genuine chances to find the back of the net.
However, he has redeemed himself following the two-week interval with three goals from as many matches and in each of those occasions, he has found different ways of scoring.
The Frenchman scored with a leaping header against Chelsea before running more than 35 yards against Club Brugge to beat the goalkeeper in a one-on-one situation.
Against the Hornets, the 24-year-old came with a sublime piece of skill to contribute a vital second goal and the fans will be hoping that he can maintain his scoring touch for the rest of the season.
