Premier League Player of the Week — Round 6


Whether you’re entirely bought-in on Anthony Martial or carving out his name on your “Jump to Conclusions” mat, there’s no debating the 19-year-old whizkid shone bright in Round 6 of the Premier League season.

It was Martial’s first Premier League start, and it included a stunning feint to open up his shot for the first goal, and a classy finish to complete his brace.

The performance had folks rushing to compare him with Thierry Henry — again — but let’s just high-five him for the work he did in scoring a pair of PL goals.

It also breaks the POTW hex against teams competing in Europe this season. It was a real hex. Trust us. Really.
