Solskjaer singles out Manchester United player for praise after performance against Manchester City

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has singled out Manchester United striker Anthony Martial for praise after his starring role in Sunday’s derby win over Manchester City.

Martial won United’s early penalty which opened the scoring and was a constant menace throughout the contest.

“I thought Anthony was absolutely superb today. He was more of the Anthony of old,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports after the game.

“He turns, gets hold of it, and to think he was a doubt this morning!

“Until two hours before the game, until after the warm-up to be fair, I wasn’t sure if he was going to play or not. So fantastic. That was the same with Luke.”
