He might be young, but he’s lethal. Anthony Martial netted a double against Southampton to seal a 3-2 win for United.
Southampton controlled proceedings in the opening stages of the game and went ahead in the 13th minute via Graziano Pelle, but they struggled to get a second.
Martial was the main man for United as he restored parity in the 34th minute and the young forward completed his brace in the second half. Making it three goals for his United account.
Juan Mata made matters worse for Southampton as he found the net in the 68th minute, with Pelle’s late strike not enough to complete a comeback.
United move up to second on the log, with 13 points and just two points behind leaders City.
