Man Utd star Bruno Fernandes demands Anthony Martial to up his goalscoring form

Manchester United star Bruno Fernandes has told Anthony Martial to keep scoring after a fine display against Watford on Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have kept up a patch of form to keep the pressure on Chelsea in fourth place in the Premier League.

The Red Devils swatted aside the Hornets with ease in a 3-0 result at Old Trafford.

Fernandes got his first goal for the club from the penalty spot after being fouled in the box.

Martial doubled the lead with a brilliant chip after swivelling on the ball with Ben Foster off his line.

And Mason Greenwood netted the third to continue what is becoming a very successful breakthrough campaign.

But it was another fine outing for Martial, who has now scored in back to back games.

The Frenchman has now netted 15 times this campaign and, with Marcus Rashford out injured, is integral to United's plans this season.

And Fernandes has urged his team-mate to continue his form in front of goal and to push himself further.

After grabbing his first goal for his new club, the Portugal international said: "This is the day every player wants to have.

“I feel lucky to score, I feel lucky to win the game. We all gave our best and we all deserved the win.

“I just need to help the team, it’s what I want to do, it’s what I need to do.

“I hope Martial scores more goals too like he did tonight."

Solskjaer was also over the moon with the result, saying: "A very good win, two good wins and two clean sheets, some goals to celebrate, now we want to kick on,” the Norwegian said.

"I thought first half we started by gifting them some good opportunities and gradually we created more and more chances.
