Martial was named 'Man of the Match' as Manchester United beat cross-town rivals City 2-0 to end their winning streak on Sunday.

He wreaked havoc and was a constant threat, winning a penalty in the opening minute after a mazy run inside City's box.

Bruno Fernandes tucked away the penalty with the Frenchman United's main source of attack as he led the line expertly at the Etihad.

The 25-year-old held the ball nicely, bringing his teammates into action and even skinned Ruben Dias with his silky footwork.

He was unable to cap his performance with a goal, but his performance was appreciated by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and United fans on social media.

On his No.9, the United boss said: "Anthony Martial was man of the match and he was an even bigger doubt than Luke [Shaw].

"That was the Anthony we know, strong positive and taking players on. Delighted for him."

He added: "That was the Martial of old. Until two hours before warm-up I wasn't sure if he'd play.

"Today he rediscovered himself. He was really strong on the ball and very positive."
