Anthony Martial breaks through one-on-one with Simon Mignolet. He doesn’t think twice about sticking it in the back of the net.
Back in 2015 Martial made his name as a Manchester United star when he scored on his debut against Liverpool. Mignolet left no chance.
He’s done the same thing tonight only for Mignolet being in goal for United’s Europa League opponents Club Brugge.
Brugge had been leading by a goal but Martial’s calm finish made it 1-1 (footage via BT Sport):
Tony Martial scores again! 🙌

It’s a huge goal for the Red Devils, counting as an away goal on the aggregate scoreline.
There’s been plenty of mistakes in this end-to-end encounter, which has definitely made it more enjoyable for the neutral. Both sides have looked vulnerable at the back and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw Eric Bailly introduced at some stage.
2-1 would be a good result for the lads.

Some similarities at least — especially his technique for the strike.
