JOE BERNSTEIN: Manchester United need an elite striker to challenge for Premier League title… but Anthony Martial showed he’s ready for the fight with encouraging display in Everton win
- Anthony Martial’s return to Manchester United was key in 3-1 Everton victory
- His willingness to run made him the focal point in United’s potent attack
- Martial missed three Premier League games for a soft red card vs Tottenham
- United certainly looked a better-balanced team with striker Martial in the line-up
Though Bruno Fernandes grabbed the headlines at Goodison Park, the return of Anthony Martial up front was also key to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United looking a more potent attacking force, particularly in the first half.
Martial was straight back into the starting line-up after missing three Premier League games for a soft red card collected against Spurs.
