Securing the third spot in the Premier League have granted them the Champions League qualification, but losing the FA Cup semi-final to Chelsea has virtually made it impossible for Manchester United to bring home a silverware unless they go on and win the Europa League.
Accordingly, it seems they are advancing towards their goal having defeated Copenhagen in last night’s quarter-final fixture of their final competition of the prolonged 2019/20 campaign.
The 1-0 scoreline saw a goal from the playmaking wizard Bruno Fernandes, coming off a penalty during the 95th minute. Regardless, one of the key figures who gained the attention of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer happens to be Anthony Martial.
Adding to the list of penalties earned, the 24-year-old was responsible for the spot-kick his side got awarded which was converted by Fernandes. Having earned the last three penalties of the Red Devils, fans continue to debate on his vision inside the box and how actively the opponents target him while there.
The Frenchman has been in a decent form this season, registering 23 goals in 46 appearances in all competitions. Deploying as the regular centre-forward mostly, the club manager has instilled a tremendous amount of faith in the talisman.
Moreover, ahead of the quarter-final, the gaffer had praised the talented striker, claiming he is “at the best level in his career” and that “there’s more to come” from the superstar.
Be that as it may, the France international’s performance in the Europa Cup fixture has in a way forced the head coach to shower even more praise.
Sourced from the MEN, the Norwegian manager stated: “He was sharp, Anthony’s developed throughout the season and today he was involved in the pen, I think.
“He’s impossible to stop at times, when he gets the ball into his feet and he drives at people. His balance, he can go either way. So the only thing now is to put that ball in the net again.”
