Manchester United moved up to second in the Premier League table with a 3-2 victory over Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The hosts started brightly and took the lead after just 12 minutes when Graziano Pelle was on hand to fire home after David De Gea had saved the initial shot.
Martial then levelled things up to score on his first full league start for the club with the Frenchman showing great composure to slot home from close range in the 34th minute.
The former Monaco man then put United ahead shortly after half time when he raced clear before cooly slotting home past Maarten Stekelenburg.
Juan Mata then made it 3-1 to the visitors in the 68th minute when he tapped home into an empty net after Memphis Depay’s shot had come back off the post.
The Saints pulled one back late on when Pelle grabbed his second of the game with a fine header but United held on to secure the win and move up to second, just two points behind leaders Manchester City.
