Anthony Martial ripped open the Liverpool defence before slotting it coolly in the bottom left corner past a hapless Mignolet with an exquisite finish. A No. 9 worthy goal and to score such a sublime goal in a debut, under so much speculation and spotlight over you adds an extra dimension to the whole scenario. Martial answered his doubters why is he worth the money, Manchester United payed for him. A breath-taking run and an emphatic finish charmed the Old Trafford crowd and will surely grab the headlines.
It was not only Anthony Martial making his debut, coming off the bench. David de Gea started his second innings in Manchester with a couple of sharp saves and brilliant shot-stopping ability. Was not up to the mark while distributing the ball when received a pass, but kept Liverpool out of the game, saving a couple of brilliant strikes whenever called into action. Must be gutted not to secure a clean-sheet but he could’ve done nothing to save the Benteke’s belter.
