Anthony Martial Wins Premier League Goal of the Season

Anthony Martial Wins Premier League Goal of the Season

Anthony Martial has won the Premier League Goal of the Season following a vote by fans.

The Manchester United striker has had quite the season since arriving from Monaco in a £36million move last summer.

At the time, that fee was seen as too expensive for a player many outside France were unaware of – with The Sun particularly judgmental with their back page headline on the transfer.

But Martial has proven all of his doubters wrong and has shown the potential which makes him one of the most exciting young players in the world by scoring 17 goals and making five assists in all competitions this season.

One of those goals came in a 3-0 win over Stoke in February at Old Trafford.

The move started in United’s own box, with five players touching the ball before Martial curled a beautiful strike into the top corner of the Potters goal.

And it’s that goal which saw him beat off competition from a number of other top strikes to win the Premier League’s Goal Cup:

It isn’t just the beautiful strike – it’s the way United cut through Stoke before their young Frenchman produced a moment of quality.

And it was also a rare glimpse of what could have been for Louis van Gaal’s Red Devils team. Fans would have settled for more of this from his side, but quality attacking play and goals came few and far between during his reign.
