On this day in 2015 Anthony Martial burst onto the scene with an 86th minute debut stunner in his side’s 3-1 victory over arch-rivals Liverpool.

Martial, now 24, joined United from AS Monaco in a move which costs the Red £54m (TransferMarkt), the famous move triggered wide spread reports that the United hierarchy had paid well over the odds for the Frenchman.

However, five years on and Martial has more than proved his worth after racking up a total of 112 direct goal involvements in 222 games in all competitions.

Arguably Martial’s most memorable moment is his very first.

“Oooh yes! Welcome to Manchester United, Anthony Martial.”
