The Dutchman was in scintillating form for the Red Devils as he scored his side’s fourth goal to help United record their biggest win under Louis van Gaal.
Martial missed the game after pulling up with a tight hamstring during the warm-up at Old Trafford.
But the French striker was clearly thrilled by Depay’s performance as the Red Devils ran riot in front of their home fans.
Martial tweeted soon after the final whistle:

It remains to be seen whether Martial will be passed fit to face Arsenal in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.
Speaking after the game, Van Gaal confirmed that the striker opted to rule himself out after suffering the problem before the kick-off but was hopeful it is not too serious.
