Video: Solskjaer praises Man United star who played vital role in brilliant Man City victory

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer lauded the performance level of Anthony Martial after inspiring another Manchester derby victory at the Etihad. 

United ended City’s 21-game winning run with a brilliant 2-0 victory, their third consecutive triumph at the home of Pep Guardiola’s side.

Bruno Fernandes and Luke Shaw scored the decisive goals but there were several notable performers in a complete performance from Solskjaer’s men.

Martial has been maligned for his performances in recent months but won the penalty for Fernandes’ opener and that set the tone for a great display.

The Frenchman could only be criticised for profligate finishing when one-on-one with City goalkeeper Ederson in the second-half.

Solskjaer described Martial as ‘absolutely superb’ and suggested that he ‘rediscovered himself’ with his strength and positivity in possession.
