In the above list all the players are regarded as United legends except for Kagawa and Martial himself who is just one year into his Man United career. The way Martial started his career at Old Trafford by scoring a stunning goal against arch rivals Liverpool on his debut, he is well on his way to become a United legend. Unless injuries disrupt Martial’s progress, United have found a gem of a player who can lead their team for the next decade at least. United are back in contention for the fourth spot after their win over Everton moving to just one point behind Manchester City.
