The French international striker produced another classy finish in injury-time at Old Trafford but United boss Louis van Gaal believes that despite the initial success, the youngster remains grounded.

“That is not so difficult (for him to stay grounded) because he is a player who is very modest and he knows he can score because of his fellow players,” the United manager said of the most expensive teenager in history.

“We made it two times very easy (for him) because we won the game and then the gaps are existing and then with his speed and his composure he can score.

“He did it also against Liverpool and now again. We are happy but still we have to keep our feet on the ground.”
