Manchester United win the bragging rights for the time being as they outscore rivals Liverpool 3-1 to bag crucial three points at Old Trafford tonight.

Daley Blind scored the opening goal from Juan Mata’s free-kick. Ander Herrera scored from the penalty spot to double the lead. The last nail in the Liverpool coffin was hammered by Manchester United new boy Anthony Martial.

Martial’s goal was a prolific finish as the teenager kept his composer in front of the goals. 

While United fans went crazy about their record signing’s goal, some compared his finish to Theirry Henry’s finish against Liverpool in the invincible’s season.

Here is a video which points out the similarities between the two goals:

Even Premier League legend Theirry Henry himself praised the youngster and said: “He stayed composed. “I call it ‘freezing the keeper’ and he puts the ball in.

“I loved the finish. It’s a great finish. What a way to announce yourself.”
