Anthony Martial wasted no time writing himself into Manchester United folklore as he stepped off the bench to score a stunning winner on debut against Liverpool.

Twenty-one minutes after his introduction, the £58million deadline-day signing turned Martin Skrtel twice before rolling the ball past Simon Mignolet to wrap up a 3-1 win for Louis van Gaal's side.

Christian Benteke had found the net with an acrobatic and arguably superior goal moments earlier, but Martial will grab the headlines after his maiden strike.

Much has been made of the record fee United paid Monaco for the 19-year-old forward, but he could not have made a better start to his United career.

This will not go down as one of the classic encounters in this world-renowned fixture, but Van Gaal will not care.
