Atlanta United finally have all three of their Designated Players again: Miguel Almiron, Hector Villalba and, for the first time in weeks, Josef Martinez. And they looked pretty darn convincing on Saturday. They got their first-ever win after losing a lead hosting Columbus and they were firing on all cylinders in a 3-1 win.

It's notable that Martinez came onto the pitch and was able to make an impact, scoring a sensational third goal for Atlanta. As good as Martinez was before his injury, the worry was that he might take him some time to get back into the swing of things.
