Anthony Martial just about ended Andros Townsend‘s career today.
The Manchester United winger didn’t do that much in his side’s 4-0 win over Crystal Palace at Old Trafford – apart from setting up Romelu Lukaku’s goal.
Some may see that as the highlight of his game, but they obviously haven’t seen this nutmeg on Townsend then.
It came in the second half and was so good that the Palace winger actually held his head in his hands:

We could watch that over and over again. Pure class from Martial.
Obviously, he didn’t really end Townsend’s career, but the Englishman may as well give up if something like that ever happens to him again.
While United moved three points clear of rivals City at the top of the Premier League, Palace were consigned to their seventh straight defeat in the league.
And they’ve still not managed to break their duck for the season.
