Following Manchester United's resounding 4-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday, one of the club's stars has been compared to France legend Thierry Henry.
The Red Devils opened their 2019/20 Premier League account on Sunday courtesy of two goals from Marcus Rashford and one apiece from Daniel James and Anthony Martial.
Club legend Paul Scholes, who now works as a pundit, praised United's performance after the match, and compared the role Martial played in particular with that of former Arsenal and Les Bleus forward Henry.
"I don't think it's a bad thing that Martial keeps coming out to the left-hand side," Scholes said, as per the Daily Mirror.
"Remember Thierry Henry? He started games at centre-forward, always ended up on the left side somehow.
"So I don't think it's a bad thing. If he (Martial) can be anything like Henry, we'd (Manchester United) take that now!"
Martial recently reclaimed the No. 9 jersey at Old Trafford following the departure of Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan.
The French international has scored 49 goals in 175 appearances for United since joining the club from Monaco in 2015.
