In summary, One shot, one goal. An impressive debut in the end from youngster Anthony Martial.
Daley Blind shot into the top corner from 16 yards as Juan Mata squared a free kick to put Manchester United ahead in the first half, Ander Herrera doubled the lead from the penalty spot, before Christian Benteke’s spectacular overhead kick pulled a goal back for the visitors.
But it was Van gaal’s golden boi Anthony Martial’s that stole the show with his debut goal which helped inflict a first away defeat of the season on Liverpool and moving Manchester United into second in the Premier League.
De Gea is back, Martial looking like money well spent, ManU 2nd place behind Manchester City, Van gaal is happy, the fans are happy.
