Anthony Martial helped Manchester United secure a 1-1 draw against CSKA Moscow on Wednesday night with this excellent second-half header.
The 19-year-old has now scored five goals in nine games for the Red Devils since joining from Monaco in the summer, as he continues to play a pivotal role for Louis van Gaal this season and saved himself after conceding a penalty in the first half.
Having lost to PSV before defeating Wolfsburg, United now sit with four points from their three games so far this tournament, and given the Bundesliga outfit defeated their Dutch rivals on Wednesday night, United remain in second place in Group B for the time being.
It looked bleak for the visitors at half-time, as despite an heroic effort from David de Gea to deny Roman Eremenko from the penalty spot, Seydou Doumbia had given the hosts the lead as he reacted first to the rebound.
Coupled with Van Gaal’s questionable selections with Jesse Lingard and Antonio Valencia starting, it would have been a nervous time for United supporters who will know the importance of the double-header against their Russian rivals.
However, Martial ensured that the two sides had to settle for a share of the spoils, and this will certainly be a result that pleases Van Gaal with the reverse fixture at Old Trafford set to take place on November 3.
Meanwhile, the focus now switches to domestic matters as United host rivals Manchester City on Sunday, with Manuel Pellegrini’s men leaving it late as Kevin De Bruyne scored an injury-time winner against Sevilla.
