Man Utd ace Martial's hat-trick Fergie landmark moment

Manchester United attacker Anthony Martial enjoyed a key landmark in victory over Sheffield United last night.

Martial became the first Manchester United player to score a Premier League hat-trick since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in his side's 3-0 victory over Sheffield United on Wednesday.

The Frenchman became the first Red Devils player to score a treble in the league since Robin van Persie's three goals against Aston Villa in 2013.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic did manage a hat-trick in the Europa League against St Etienne in 2017, but other than that no player has managed what Martial achieved.

Martial has scored 19 goals in 36 games across all competitions this season.
