Paul Scholes after Everton: It was Antony's best match since his arrival

It has been a great season for Manchester United, and they played one of the best matches of the season against Everton, winning 2:0 in the end. There were a number of impressive performances from the players in this match, but the Brazilian Antony seemed to be the most motivated for the contest.

There were a lot of great moves that he made and a few good shots that he took. Having commented on the match, Paul Scholes had only positive things to say about Antony given his great performance in the match. ‘I used to think of him as a one trick pony,’ Scholes told BT Sport, as quoted by metro.co.uk ‘I think that was the best game I’ve seen him play for Manchester United today.’

Anthony Martial and the continuation of the season

It was great to see Anthony Martial back on the pitch after a long period of absence, and he scored an important goal for Manchester United.

Scholes has stressed the importance of the Frenchman in the team's success. In spite of this, Martial's constant injuries are the reason why he has been unable to regain his form and make better statistics over the course of this season.

As the most important part of the season approaches, United can hope that Martial will be able to give his best in the next few matches, as well as the others. There are two more trophies that Manchester is in the running for; the European League trophy and the FA Cup trophy.

The players are aware of how much it will mean to them if they manage to win these two prestigious titles one day. ‘It’s great to have him back, we all know the quality he has got but he has to stay fit,’ Scholes said.

‘He hasn’t got a good record fitness wise,’ Scholes said. ‘If he’s playing in this team [injury free] he’s scoring 20-25 goals.’
