[Marcus Rashford] gave me one or two assists today, so the most important thing is to win. The hosts controlled nearly 70 percent of the ball and badly outshot their guests, who forced David de Gea into just one save all match.
Martial scored all three goals as United beat Sheffield United at Old Trafford on Wednesday, and Owen has urged him to capitalise on the chance to become a pivotal player for the club. I think he's maybe looking to take on responsibility, and he needs to do that.
"But for me, the first and the second were better".
The France global moved onto 19 goals for the season - the best return of his career - by superbly scooping the ball over Simon Moore late on as the hosts secured a surprisingly routine win.
"I think he is enjoying playing with the two guys either side of him - [Marcus] Rashford and [Mason] Greenwood - there is a lot of interchanging of positions, and that is the way he likes to play that role".
Paul Pogba put in a promising performance on his first start since September and there was a snapshot of what could lie ahead alongside Bruno Fernandes, with the pair involved before Martial met Aaron Wan-Bissaka's cross.
The home side should have increased their lead moments later when Martial turned provider after bursting through the visiting rearguard but Rashford's close-range finish dribbled wide.
The former Arsenal striker sent a classy message to the United No.9 after someone finally came along to "take the baton".
Martial completed a comfortable victory by clipping in Rashford's clever pass, allowing Solskjaer to make history by becoming the first Premier League manager to send on five substitutes at the same time.
"I've never said fourth is our aim", Solskjaer said.
"Of course it's not the same".
"But the situation is like that, we had to adapt and to give our best without them and hopefully soon we will play in front of them".
Having shone since promotion, a frustrating goalless draw at Aston Villa has been compounded by back-to-back 3-0 losses at Newcastle and Manchester United since play resumed. "We have worked with him getting in the box".
"I'll be a part of that as well because I have the ability to change and effect it".
