The Red Devils opened their 2019/20 Premier League account on Sunday courtesy of two goals from Marcus Rashford and one apiece from Daniel James and Anthony Martial.

Club legend Paul Scholes, who now works as a pundit, praised United's performance after the match, and compared the role Martial played in particular with that of former Arsenal and Les Bleus forward Henry.

"I don't think it's a bad thing that Martial keeps coming out to the left-hand side," Scholes said, as per the Daily Mirror.

"Remember Thierry Henry? He started games at centre-forward, always ended up on the left side somehow.

"So I don't think it's a bad thing. If he (Martial) can be anything like Henry, we'd (Manchester United) take that now!"

Martial recently reclaimed the No. 9 jersey at Old Trafford following the departure of Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan.
