Anthony Martial made it two goals in two league games for Manchester United as he found the back of the net against Southampton this afternoon.

The French youngster, who is now the most expensive teenager in football history following his £36 million switch from Monaco in the summer window, has hit the ground running and backed up his debut strike against Liverpool with a close-range effort at St.Mary's.

His goal canceled out Graziano Pelle's early strike and, after former Manchester United defender Gary Neville praised him for his 'cool' finish, the club's fans soon followed suit.

The French international soon bagged his second of the game in the second half after he pounced on a mistake from Southampton defender Maya Yoshida, and a few familiar faces soon chipped in with some praise as well.

Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand wrote: "Martial - bargain of the transfer window at this rate!!!! Haha", while ex-Tottenham and Leicester striker-turned Match of the Day presenter Gary Lineker added: "Martial is beginning to resemble a steal."

Martial's price tag could rise to as high as £56 million depending on add-ons including if he can win the Ballon d'Or - and if he carries on at this rate then we wouldn't put it past him.
