‘Full force’ – Manchester United fans react as Anthony Martial inspires Sevilla victory

Manchester United supporters continue to react after watching Anthony Martial deliver the goods during a home debut for loan club Sevilla.

The 26-year-old completed a temporary move from United to the La Liga side during the January window.

Martial was sent an early warning by Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui after struggling on his debut in Spain, but it appears as though that message has had the desired effect.

Chasing table-toppers Real Madrid, second-placed Sevilla recorded a crucial win over Elche on Friday night.

It was a result that moves them to within three points of the Santiago Bernabeu giants, although Madrid still have one game in hand. That comes against Villarreal on Saturday afternoon (3.15pm).

Sevilla have kept up the pressure, though, with Martial playing a hugely-important role as he provided two assists during his home debut, charging down the ball for Papu Gomez to open the scoring before sending in a left-footed cross for Rafa Mir to rubber-stamp all three points.

Here are a selection of comments from United supporters on social media platform Twitter;

@TyroneMc_ said: “Martial with TWO assists on his home debut! Delivering the goods for Sevilla.”

@rossainthecox posted: “Contributed to both goals, Martial FC is in full force.”

@Zizoureem added: “Another solid performance. Martial is getting there bit by bit.”
