A section of the Manchester United supporters have praised Anthony Martial following his superb display in the club’s 3-1 Premier League triumph over Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday.
The Frenchman has improved on a game-by-game basis since his recovery from a nagging thigh problem and he came up with another top notch display against the Seagulls.
Martial impressed with his hold-up and link-up play during the course of the game and he made the difference by contributing assists for the goals scored by Andreas Pereira and Marcus Rashford.
As a result, he has clearly pleased the club’s faithful and a few of them have expressed their delight over the forward’s glowing performance on Twitter.
Before this season, Martial was a good player with world class talent. Right now, he is an excellent player with world class talent.
With another 10-15 games at this level and, hopefully, the competition of the season at it, he will be seen as a world class player.

Anthony Martial has developed so much and unfortunately his injury has prevented people from seeing it. This season he looks like a new man. A great focal point, outstanding feet and really impressive hold up play. 2 assists for him today and he thoroughly deserved a goal.

Martial created 6 chances today uno, what a performance

Martial made a bright beginning to the season with two goals and an assist from the opening three matches but he thereafter sustained a thigh injury which unfortunately sidelined him for more than seven weeks.
He has, however, returned to the playing field with the determination to make up for the lost time and his presence has likewise improved the performance from Rashford, who has reverted to his preferred left wing role.
Despite the positives, there is plenty of ground to cover to the top four places and hopefully, Martial can continue with his sparkling form when the Red Devils return after the international break to face Sheffield United on the road.
