Report and free highlights as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side continue march towards Champions League places
Anthony Martial produced his standout performance in a Manchester United shirt as he bagged a hat-trick in a 3-0 win over Sheffield United.
The French striker has had his critics at Old Trafford but gave a lacklustre Blades outfit the run-around, opening the scoring with a close-range finish from a Marcus Rashford cross (7).
Chris Wilder’s men did not heed that warning as they allowed another cross from the right flank from Aaron Wan-Bissaka to be clinically finished by Martial (44). He completed his hat-trick by finishing off a flowing move (74) that involved both Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba, who were starting together for the first time for Manchester United.
The result stretches Ole Gunnar Solskjaer side’s unbeaten run to 13 games across all competitions – a period where they’ve scored 33 goals and conceded just three. It also moves them back to within two points of Chelsea in fourth – Frank Lampard’s side play Manchester City on Thursday.
Sheffield United’s season seems to be ending with a whimper having taken just one point from three games since the restart without scoring.
