Teenage striker Anthony Martial further endeared himself to Manchester United's supporters with a nerveless brace as his side came from behind to win 3-2 at Southampton Sunday. Scorer of a memorable solo goal in last weekend's 3-1 win over Liverpool, 19-year-old Martial struck either side of halftime at St. Mary's after Graziano Pelle had given Southampton a 13th-minute lead.Juan Mata added a third in the 68th minute and despite Pelle scoring again, United held on for a victory that propelled Louis van Gaal's side up to second place in the Premier League table, two points below leaders Man City, who lost 2-1 at home to West Ham United Saturday.Pelle hit the post moments later, but Martial equalized in the 34th minute, throwing Virgil van Dijk off balance with a neat Cruyff turn inside the box and slipping a shot beneath Maarten Stekelenburg.He put United ahead five minutes into the second half, seizing on a woeful Maya Yoshida back-pass and coolly beating Stekelenburg, before Mata slammed home after Memphis Depay's shot came back off the post following a hypnotic 44-pass move.
