Wednesday’s 3-0 win over Sheffield United spawned three excellent goals from Anthony Martial, as well as countless statistics that will fascinate almost every Manchester United supporter.

Here, you can catch up on some of the best facts and figures…

TREBLE IS THE WORD

Anthony Martial is the first United player to score a Premier League hat-trick since Robin van Persie hit three past Aston Villa in April 2013. During that seven-year wait, Wayne Rooney and Zlatan Ibrahimovic hit trebles in Europe – against Club Brugge and Saint-Etienne, respectively. 

THREE IN A ROW

Continuing with our no.9, the Frenchman has now scored in three successive Premier League home games for the first time in his United career. Can he make it four against Bournemouth on 4 July?

NOT 19 FOREVER

Anthony and fellow striker Marcus Rashford have each scored 19 goals in all competitions this term, which is a career-best tally for both forwards. Who will finish as our top scorer in 2019/20?

CREATIVE FORCE

Speaking of Rashford, the homegrown hero recorded two assists in a Premier League game for the fourth time in his career – and his first pair of top-flight assists since December 2018 against Fulham.

HALF A CENTURY

Martial, Rashford and Mason Greenwood have now scored 50 goals between them this season, with the latter contributing an impressive 12 goals in his first full campaign with the seniors. 

OLE’S AT THE WHEEL

Solskjaer’s Reds are unbeaten in 13 games across all competitions and that is our best run since November 2016 to January 2017. 

DEFENSIVE STRENGTH

United have kept seven clean sheets in the last eight matches at Old Trafford in all competitions, including shutouts in each of the last five at home.

HISTORY BOYS

Solskjaer made the first quintuple substitution ever in English football when collectively introducing Odion Ighalo, Daniel James, Juan Mata, Scott McTominay and Andreas Pereira on 80 minutes.

MILESTONE MAN

On Wednesday evening, Mata made his 250th United appearance when stepping off the bench late on to draw level with Stewart Houston on the club's all-time list.
