Video: Anthony Martial scores header against Aston Villa

Posted by

Anthony Martial has given Manchester United the lead at home to Aston Villa with the Frenchman bagging a goal in the 40′. The forward was receiving criticism from pundits before the game with Andy Cole saying on Sky Sports that ‘his finishing is erratic. He doesn’t make the right decision at times.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s cross from the right hand side perfectly finds Martial’s head inside the box where he was able to place the ball past Emi Martinez into the back of the Villa net. Brilliant movement and finishing as Anthony was able to beat 3 defenders in the box to the ball and get down low enough for the cross. Ole will be delighted to see this goal as his 2 players were heavily outnumbered but still managed to work hard enough to get United into the lead at home.
