Anthony Martial looked to be in good spirits with his wife Samantha as the Manchester United starlet celebrated Christmas Day with his partner.

The French forward is getting his first taste of spending the festive season in England following his big-money transfer from Monaco to Old Trafford over the summer.

Martial and his team-mates have been training all week as they prepare for their Premier League trip to Stoke City on Boxing Day.

And the 20-year-old looked to be enjoying himself, as his wife snapped the pictures above of the couple and posted them on her Instagram account.

Samantha shared the snaps on the app and wrote: “Merry Christmas Manchester.”
