Anthony Martial continued his stunning start to life at Manchester United with a man-of-the-match performance in Sunday’s 3-2 win over Southampton.

The 19-year-old, who joined the Red Devils from Monaco on transfer deadline day earlier this month, scored twice to help fire Louis van Gaal’s men up to second place in the table and two points behind leaders Manchester City.

And Martial’s baby daughter Toto was the recipient of the striker’s man-of-the-match award after the game, as the forward’s wife shared the cute picture above on her personal Instagram account.

The Red Devils fell behind in the 13th minute at St Mary’s when Graziano Pelle smashed home a loose ball after De Gea’s superb save.

But Martial drew the Red Devils level 10 minutes before half-time with a smart turn and shot.

The summer signing then took advantage of Maya Yoshida’s poor backpass to slot in a second five minutes after the break.

Juan Mata added a third in the 68th minute, before Pelle headed in a late second as United held on.
