Jose Mourinho's side emerged from Turf Moor as 2-0 winners, with the first goal coming courtesy of the French international. Martial outpaced Barton, as United counter-attacked their Premier League opposition, playing a one-two with Matteo Darmian before finishing past Tom Heaton.

The former Manchester City, Newcastle United and Queens Park Rangers man was completely outrun by Martial in the United breakaway, leading to many viewers to laugh at the notorious bad boy of football.
