Anthony Martial’s wife’s brilliant reaction to his Man Utd goal at Old Trafford

Anthony Martial's glamorous wife, Melanie, was amongst the Manchester United fans wildly celebrating their derby day win over Manchester City.

French attacker Martial broke the deadlock as he fired beyond Ederson at the near post after half an hour.

Melanie Martial Da Cruz and other family and friends were behind the goal where he found the net enjoying the game from a box.

She took to social media to share a clip jumping around wildly in celebration as the ball hit the back of the net and Old Trafford erupted.

Clearly impressed by the strike from her husband, she then filmed a close up of the replay on Snapchat to show off his strike before capturing his name ringing out around Old Trafford.

Martial was replaced by Scott McTominay with just over 10 minutes remaining as they closed the game out, with his replacement sealing the win deep in added time as Melanie continued to celebrate a massive victory.

He has become a crucial figure under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, scoring 11 goals in 23 Premier League games this term including three in his last four games.

It marks a significant shift since he struggled to make his mark under previous boss Jose Mourinho, whom Melanie claimed left Martial feeling "isolated" as she hit out at the Portuguese manager last December.

"During our first two years together in Manchester, I experienced a very difficult period because Jose Mourinho did not play him (between 2016 and 2018)," Martial Da Cruz told L’Equipe.

"In these cases, Anthony shuts himself out. You know he’s suffering, but he doesn’t say it. I felt trapped in my sense of injustice because, as a wife, you can’t say anything (to the coach).

"We’re just watching our man go down. I was experiencing it so badly that I didn’t go to certain events so as not to meet the coach."

Asked if she ever considered attacking Mourinho on social media, she replied: "No, never, because Anthony doesn’t want to. You have to stay where you belong. On the other hand, when he came in and scored, I wanted to scream out my pride."
