england Attacker Marcus Rashford and Spanish International Juan Mata also sent messages to Martial.

Martial performance also drew comparisons with club legend rud van nisterooy as former Blackburn and Chelsea striker Sutton also likened Martial's magnificent display to that of Ruud van Nistelrooy.

"They were typical finishes of a No 9, sniffing them out in the penalty area," Sutton told The Mail. "I’ve always worried about his instinct in the box and

thought he played on the back foot too much, but these goals were what you’d expect from a Ruud van Nistelrooy type."

Sutton added that Martial could be the solution to United's search for a striker if he can reproduce the same form, and boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed he has been working closely with the player.

"We have worked a lot with Anthony on his movement in there and to be patient in there because he's a quality player who can drop out of the box and get some touches," Solskjaer said.

"But that's where you score the goals, and the last one of course was very nice combination play and a great finish."
