Anthony Martial has a knack for scoring some eye-catching goals from time to time. He scored a marvellous goal on his Manchester United debut against Liverpool back in 2015 and has since scored quite a few beauties. On Thursday night against Partizan Belgrade in the UEFA Europa League, he once again he stole the headlines after he showed some quick feet in the box to evade defenders to slot the ball home in style.
Manchester United have been in good form in the Europa League, winning three from their four games so far and Thursday night's fixture against Partizan at Old Trafford was always expected to be a relatively easy fixture for United. After Mason Greenwood put the home side ahead in the 22nd minute, it was Anthony Martial's time to make some headlines. After a weak clearance landed the ball in Martial's path, it was clear that the Frenchman would go for goal. It was always going to be difficult as he had to beat two defenders to get a clear shot at goal. And boy did he do that in style! He cut inside away from Partizan defender Strahinja Pavlovic and then again showed some footwork to avoid another challenge, before eventually tucking it under goalkeeper Vladimir Stojkovic to make it 2-0. The goal was a killer blow for the visitors as United ran-out comfortable 3-0 winners at the end with a performance that would boost the side ahead of the Premier League fixture against Brighton on Sunday.
What a goal that is from Martial. Four lovely touches. Done three Partizan defenders and the goalkeeper. Class.— Rob Dawson (@RobDawsonESPN) November 7, 2019
