​Manchester United striker Anthony Martial has found a unique way to keep himself occupied while his girlfriend spends hours shopping for new clothes. 

Fresh from his goal scoring heroics in Sunday's 2-0 win over Burnley, the Frenchman was spotted posing as a mannequin when shopping with Melanie Da Cruz Pires in Manchester city centre. 

According to the ​Sun, Martial's partner was taking so long to select some new clothes to try on that the forward decided to audition for the role of a mannequin and bizarrely took his place in the shop window alongside two dummies.

Clearly enjoying the end of his 11-match goal drought, Martial eventually gave up being a mannequin and was seen walking out with Ms Pires whilst holding a number of bags. 

It was back to business on Wednesday for Martial however, as he and his teammates prepare for Thursday's crucial Manchester derby. 

Both teams will be searching for all three points as they look to boost their respective top four hopes and it's fair to say that Pep Guardiola's men will be hoping the influential Martial is just as static and lifeless for the meeting at the Etihad, as they look to end the Red Devils' 23 match unbeaten run in the league.
