Anthony Martial made player of the month

New Manchester United signing, Anthony Martial has been named as the Barclays player of the month for September. The French striker joined United from Monaco for a staggering £36 million but has since proven himself to be the real deal for United. On his debut for the club, Anthony Martial came off the bench and scored a wonderful goal at the strentford end against arch rivals Liverpool and since then he has continued his good form for the club. He also scored a brace against South Hampton overturning the deficit for the club before fellow United player Juan Mata rounded off the scoring in that match. The young striker beat fellow united team mate Daley Blind, Hugo Lloris and a host of other players to the award

Martial deserves this award following his stellar performance which he has further extended to country football. He always looked likely to score whenever he was on the ball in France’s euro qualification match against Denmark during the midweek. Martial was virtually unknown before his big money move to old trafford. The United board were even criticised by the media for spending such an amount for a player who was bring nothing but potential to the team but the french player quickly proved that he was worth every penny with his two performances.

Although Martial did win the Barclays player of the month, Juan Matt was the one who was voted by United fans for the club’s player of the month. He returns to action tomorrow as United travel to goodisoon park to face Everton.

Manchester United sent out word to those who have doubted their abilities as they came from behind to seal all three points on Wednesday night against Wolfsburg. Having lost their first match, the red devils were really looking forward to recovering from their loss. They lost most than three points against PSV because it they also lost England player Luke Shaw to injury. The news of Shaw’s injury over shadowed their loss to PSV Eindhoven. They succeeded in getting back to winning ways in the Champions League in front of their home fans as goals from Juan Mata and Chris Smalling cancelled out Daniel Caliguiri’s early opener at Old Trafford. The win means that all four teams in the group have shared the spoil equally so far with each team sitting on three points.

United came into the match with a lot of high hopes given that were now topping the Premier League table. Summer signing Anthony Martial also continued with his good form although he was unlucky not to have registered a goal in the match. All through the 90 minutes, he looked like he was going to pop a goal every time he was in possession. After equalizing through a spot kick by Juan Mata, United went on to take the through a sublime pass from Mata which Chris Smalling popped home from close range. Wolfsburg searched for a desperate equalizer after wards as the laid siege on De Gea post but the home team held on to their win till the end.
