The 19-year-old scored a superb solo goal in the closing stages of the match at Old Trafford to help ensure all three points for his new employers against their fierce rivals from Merseyside.
Martial slalomed past Martin Skrtel before placing the ball to perfection into the bottom corner of the net past Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet - a finish that has intensified the comparisons with Arsenal legend Thierry Henry.
