Many scoffed when Manchester United spent £36m on a 19-year-old that most people had never heard of.

But Anthony Martial is making a quick impact at his new club, scoring on his debut against Liverpool and then again on his first Premier League start in the game against Southampton.

Both goals have been of real quality. His first against Liverpool came after a jinking run through the defence of United's bitter rivals. The second at St Mary's saw the teenager take a lovely touch inside the box before unleashing his shot, a goal of real composure.

Whilst two goals in two Premier League games is an impressive stat in itself, Martial's second goal came from just his second shot on target in a Manchester United shirt.
