Anthony Martial has the knack of scoring from the bench this season having done so already three times. Martial has scored as substitute against Everton, West Ham and Swansea.

Tottenham Hotspur has been added to that growing list after a crucial late winner to keep the Red Devils on the hunt for the Premier League title.

Martial also proved a point to Mourinho with the Portuguese not so fond of the Frenchman. Martial showed why he should have spot in the starting line-up.

3-5-2 Works Good For United

[spacer height=”20px”]

Mourinho has been shifting between three and four players as the main backline this season.

[spacer height=”20px”]

Both the systems have clicked for Jose Mourinho and United. Mourinho has been experimenting the 3-5-2 formation since the pre-season tour.

[spacer height=”20px”]

Jose Mourinho has used this formation to nullify opposition attacks as well as in breaking into opposition defence.

The wing-backs can shift into defence as well as go forward. This helped largely against Tottenham.

[spacer height=”20px”]

Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera stopped Tottenham from dictating the tempo of the match. And with Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia as full-backs, United looked as a solid outfit.
