Witnessing a prime version of Anthony Martial on the field, Manchester United have showcased their class last night with a 3-0 scoreline in their Premier League clash against Sheffield United.
Yet another match played behind closed doors owing to the looming COVID-19 threat, but the absence of cheers are seemingly not affecting the performance of players whatsoever, as the Mancunians proved how well they’ve retained their touch following the break.
Seven minutes into the game, Marcus Rashford assisted Martial to ascertain their supremacy in the fixture, as a low cross from the former found the latter on the other end which was then followed by a decent finish.
The Frenchman didn’t waste further opportunities which came his way, having successfully completed a hat-trick and becoming the first United star to hit a solid three in a league match in a while, with Robin van Persie registering the last back in 2013.
That particular aspect of the match was further highlighted by the supporters, evident from the reactions which started flooding Twitter as soon as the talisman scored the third in the 74th minute of the widely anticipated clash.
Glancing over the supporting cast nevertheless, the appreciable feat of the 24-year-old was largely made possible by the playmaking efforts of Rashford, who found the former twice in crucial points of the game, that resulted in two goals among the three.
Following the final whistle, the United No. 10 took it to Twitter to praise his Old Trafford compatriot.

Providing further solace to the supporters is certainly the fact that the Red Devils are now closer to the 4th position in the table, being just 2 points off Chelsea, although the Blues do have a game in hand.
