Martial scores United's first PL hat-trick since Ferguson's departure

Anthony Martial has scored Manchester United's first Premier League hat-trick since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.

The Frenchman was on fire as United swoop past Sheffield United at Old Trafford on Wednesday evening.

Martial opened the show with two first-half goals in the 7th and 44th minutes, giving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men a comfortable home lead against Chris Wilder's men.

The 24-year-old would late net his first senior team career hat-trick with a composed finish after a one-two with Marcus Rashford in the 74th minute.

Martial becomes the first United player to net a league treble since Robin van Persie in 2013.
