Gary Lineker singled out Anthony Martial for special praise after his brilliant goal helped Manchester United seal a 2-0 win at Everton on Monday night.
The Red Devils headed into the game under pressure to return to winning ways after three straight draws in the Premier League over the festive period.
After a goalless first half at Goodison Park, it was Martial who gave the visitors the lead in the 57th minute with a brilliant curling effort into the top right corner.
And Jesse Lingard continued his brilliant form for the Red Devils when he scored a top quality goal in the 81st minute to secure the three points.
The victory left Manchester United in second place in the Premier League Table and 12 points behind leaders Manchester City in the race for the title.
England legend Lineker was clearly very impressed with what he saw from Martial and took to social media after his brilliant opener.
Lineker wrote on Twitter during the game: “Cracking goal.
“As it’s now a thing, it’s worth pointing out that Martial has scored more goals in this calendar year than Messi, Ronaldo, Kane and Neymar combined.”
Manchester United are next in action when they take on Derby County at Old Trafford in the third round of the FA Cup on Friday night.
The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last season.
