The question is not if he has lived up to his price tag, it's wether or not he can live up to Martin Tyler's commentary… #Martial

Is Martin Tyler a United fan, I've never heard a commentator celebrate a goal like that before in a run of the mill game.

Martin Tyler definitely has Martial in his #FPL team. But why on Earth are people comparing Benteke & Martial's goals. Not even a question.

After a goalless and uninspiring first half, United took the lead when Daley Blind curled home from a free kick after being set up by Juan Mata.
Ander Herrera made it 2-0 from the penalty spot after the Spaniard was brought down by Joe Gomez in the box.
Christian Benteke then pulled a goal back for Brendan Rodgers’ men late on with a superb overhead kick to set up a tense finale.
However, substitute Martial put the game beyond doubt when he surged into the box and slotted home a cool finish to wrap up the three points.
