So much angst gripped Manchester United fans as transfer deadline day came and went last week but this is where it mattered.

This is where Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made his statement; this is where, quite literally, the United manager counter-attacked.

“That’s where the number nines get the goals,” Solskjaer said.



Romelu Lukaku was sold, no big name attacking player was signed, with interest in Paulo Dybala, Christian Eriksen and Mario Mandzukic proving fruitless, but this was an exciting glimpse of the future and the present as Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial stepped up to eventually sweep aside new-era Chelsea.

Having had the number taken off him when Zlatan Ibrahimovic was signed, with it then going to Lukaku, Martial reclaimed it and did so in emphatic style.

Now Martial has to carry on.

Risk and reward football, Solskjaer called it, and while he admitted United rode their luck they got their reward.
