Crocked Manchester United winger Anthony Martial has tweeted his support for team-mate Memphis Depay after the Dutchman scored the opener against Watford this afternoon.

Depay was thrust into action this afternoon following a spate of injuries having been dropped in favour of Jesse Lingard in recent weeks. The 21-year-old was a £31 million arrival in the summer from PSV Eindhoven but managed just one goal in his first eight Premier League appearances and was subsequently relegated to the bench.

Martial was forced to miss the match after limping out of France's 2-0 friendly defeat against England at Wembley in mid-week.

Who do you think has the most potential - Martial or Depay?
