United pushed for the victory in the second-half with Lukaku hitting the post, and ultimately the Belgian provided the decisive flick which allowed Martial to become the Old Trafford hero. Martial has witnessed mixed performances from the starting lineup of late, but the Frenchman managed to come up with the perfect response with his fourth goal from the bench this term.

Martial has already made his mark in Europe with a goal and two assists, and there is every chance that he could feature ahead of Rashford following his match-defining performance on a wet afternoon at Old Trafford.
