Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has singled out Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw for praise following his side’s 2-0 win over Manchester City in Sunday’s Premier League derby at Etihad.
According to Solskjaer, both Martial and Shaw were fantastic against Man City during the encounter.
Man United ended Man City’s long unbeaten run, thanks to goals from Bruno Fernandes and Shaw.
The result means Man United are now 11 points behind Pep Guardiola’s side on the Premier League table.
“I thought Anthony was absolutely superb today. He was more of the Anthony of old,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports after the game.
“He turns, gets hold of it, and to think he was a doubt this morning! Until two hours before the game, until after the warm-up, to be fair, I wasn’t sure if he was going to play or not. So fantastic. That was the same with Luke.”
Man United’s next fixture is against AC Milan in the Europa League on Thursday.
