The Manchester United forward duo of Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney had a tally of 6 goals between them this season going into the match, but nicked a goal each as the Red Devils beat Swansea City at Old Trafford.
Martial was in supreme form for Manchester United as he scored the opening goal for the Red Devils in the 47th minute and also provided an assist for Wayne Rooney after a good run down the flank. Manchester United fans took to twitter to laud the young Frenchman and Rooney’s audacious back heel goal.
I know you’d expect it for A?58m but Martial is quality.

Martial should be wrapped in bubble wrap & locked in a padded room between matches.

The match also saw Wayne Rooney overtake Dennis Law to become the second highest goalscorer of all time in Premier League history…
