The magnificent team move - arguably the best team goal of the season so far - started in defence and culminated in Martial bending a superb shot into the top right-hand corner.

The revitalised Wayne Rooney, who has looked much sharper over the past few weeks, provided the assist.

Rooney and Martial working well together

Perhaps Rooney had read Martial’s comments earlier in the day. The French striker revealed the United and England captain inspires him and he hopes to become a “great player” like his teammate in the future.

Well, Anthony, it seems you’re on the right tracks.

The 20-year-old has now scored six Premier League goals this season - and it would be a genuine surprise if he doesn’t finish the season in double figures.

Is this the best team goal of the season so far? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
