Watch: Anthony Martial nutmeg leaves Andros Townsend in disbelief


Andros Townsend has not had a season to enjoy with Crystal Palace to date – and Anthony Martial only rubbed it in during Manchester United‘s dominant win on Saturday afternoon.

Palace are yet to pick up a point or even score in the Premier League this term, with Roy Hodgson replacing the sacked Frank De Boer earlier this month.

And the run continued at Old Trafford, where United triumphed 4-0 thanks to a Marouane Fellaini brace and goals from Romelu Lukaku and Juan Mata.

But another of the game’s highlights came in Martial completely skinning Towsend – who was infamously on the receiving end of a nutmeg from Spurs’ Erik Lamela a couple of seasons ago – leaving the England international with his head in his hands.
