‘Love this man’, Manchester United fans react to forward’s performance vs Burnley

Manchester United supporters were pleased with the impact of Anthony Martial, who netted the sole goal in the club’s Premier League triumph over Burnley. The Red Devils had an average performance during the first period, but they came out after the break with a renewed vigour as Martial notched a well-timed goal after a brilliant assist from Romelu Lukaku.

With Alexis Sanchez set to join United, Martial’s left-wing position is likely to come under consideration, but judging by his recent performances, Jose Mourinho could be urged to utilise his new recruit on the right flank to encourage the Frenchman’s sublime form.







Martial has now opened the scoring for Manchester United in three consecutive matches, and his progress has clearly seen him establish as the first-choice winger ahead of Marcus Rashford. Rashford had his highpoints earlier in the campaign, but the Englishman may have to settle for a bench role at best with Sanchez likely to command a starting spot from the off.

Despite his success, Martial does not quite favour the left-wing as he likes to feature more centrally. Mourinho utilised Martial in a two-striker partnership in the Champions League earlier this campaign, and he could yet tempted to go with a similar formation.
