Manchester United striker Anthony Martial was on the scoresheet and on top of our Man of the Match poll following his superb double in the 2-2 draw with Chelsea.
The Frenchman struck twice after the break with two fine finishes which looked to have secured the win for the Reds until Ross Barkley poked home a desperate equaliser for the hosts in the dying stages at Stamford Bridge.

Martial was the first player to score two for United on Chelsea’s patch since another no.11, Ryan Giggs, grabbed a brace in the 5-4 League Cup defeat back in October 2012.
February in that same calendar year was also the last time a Reds star found the net twice in a Premier League game at the Bridge, when Wayne Rooney fired in two penalties in a thrilling 3-3 draw.
Martial garnered a staggering 81 per cent of the votes in our Man of the Match poll on Twitter and United’s captain for the day, Ashley Young, was full of praise for his team-mate after the game.
