Manchester United supporters were undoubtedly delighted with the performance of Anthony Martial after he stood out in the 2-0 Champions League triumph over Benfica last night.

The Frenchman made his third Champions League start in four matches after he bagged the crucial winner in the 1-0 victory against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.

Though Martial missed a first-half penalty, he remained a glowing presence on the left side of the attack as he used his exceptional pace and skills to test the Benfica backline on regular occasions.

Here are the best tweets over Martial’s performance….

United’s supporters at Old Trafford voiced their pleasure over Martial’s showing during the game, and it may not be soon before he commands a regular starting role in the Premier League.

Despite, Martial’s progress under Mourinho this campaign, he fails to find the end product of his movement, and this has seen the gaffer prefer Marcus Rashford ahead of him in the pecking order.

Rashford, now 20, has made a far better impact in the Premier League – while commanding a starting position, and Martial may have to improve on his final ball as well as defending to make the cut.
