Video: Martial ends 7-year Man United wait as he seals hat-trick vs Sheffield with lovely lob

Posted by

In the 73rd minute of Manchester United’s clash with Sheffield United, Anthony Martial sealed a hat-trick with a sumptuous finish.

In a brilliant move that was started from the back, Bruno Fernandes used a lovely flick to hand the ball to Martial – with the star then playing it into strike partner Marcus Rashford.

Rashford has shown his underrated link-up play this evening, the England international returned it to Martial with a perfectly-weighted pass and the ace effortlessly lobbed the ball over Simon Moore.

Martial showed his clinical edge with his two goals for the Red Devils earlier in the tie, here’s his first and take a look at his second after some fine work by Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
