Anthony Martial Nets Hat Trick for Man United vs. Sheffield United

It was Anthony Martial's day for Manchester United.

The French striker scored the first hat trick of his career–and the first Man United hat trick since Robin van Persie's in 2013–in a key 3-0 victory over Sheffield United at an empty Old Trafford on Wednesday.

Martial scored in the seventh, 44th and 74th minutes, bringing him even with Marcus Rashford for the team lead on the season. It was Rashford that set Martial up for his first, whipping a ball to the near post, where Martial turned it home.

The two nearly combined for another minutes later, with goalkeeper David de Gea springing Rashford down the left with a pinpoint long pass.
