Video: Martial’s 50th goal for Man United gives them the lead against Southampton

Posted by

Having gone behind against Southampton at Old Trafford, Man United turned things around in three first half minutes.

Marcus Rashford had already equalised for the hosts on 20 minutes before Anthony Martial took matters into his own hands on 23.

Picking the ball up out wide on Southampton’s right-hand side, he was allowed to cut inside before unleashing a ferocious drive that beat Alex McCarthy all ends up.

The goal was also the Frenchman’s 50th for the Red Devils and sent United in ahead at the break.

Martial has been in superb form recently, with United’s front three generally firing on all cylinders as Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood have also really caught the eye.

Man Utd fans will be disappointed, however, that their team couldn’t build on this dominance in today’s match as they ended up conceding a late, late equaliser to only draw 2-2 with Southampton, failing to gain some crucial momentum in this season’s battle for the top four.
