Anthony Martial ensured Manchester United became the first club to score 1000 goals at home in the Premier League by netting the winner against Everton.
The France international brought his tally to eight goals for the campaign, converting Timothy Fosu-Mensah’s low cross from close range.
It capped an excellent team move. Juan Mata produced a lovely piece of control to cushion the ball before passing to Marcus Rashford, who took a touch before back-heeling into the path of Fosu-Mensah. The 18-year-old played the ball across the face of goal and the grateful Martial couldn’t miss. (Scroll down this page to watch the video).
