Anthony Martial does not appear to be letting Manchester United’s disappointing defeat by Sunderland get him down, as the striker posed for a selfie with his wife Samantha on Monday night.

Martial played the full 90 minutes as the Red Devils were beaten 2-1 by the Black Cats at the Stadium of Light on Saturday as their stuttering Premier League form continued.

The result left Louis van Gaal’s men in fifth place in the Premier League table and six points behind bitter local rivals Manchester City heading into the final 12 games of the season.

However, Martial enjoyed some downtime with his wife before he and his team-mates turn their attention towards their Europa League last-32 clash with Midtjylland on Thursday night.

Samantha Martial shared the picture above on her personal Instagram account on Monday night and wrote: “Good night.”

Martial’s rise to prominence has been one of the few positives from an otherwise forgettable season for United this term.

He has scored seven Premier League goals and made three assists so far this season.
