When Manchester United signed French wonderkid Anthony Martial, the British press couldn't wait to jump the gun, declaring the 19 year old a "waste of money" before he'd even touched a ball in England. 

We'd like to see what those same headline writers make of these stats, which show Martial is the Premier League's most clinical finisher so far this season, with three goals from three shots on target.

Martial is joint top alongside Norwich's Russel Martin and Everton's Steven Naismith.

Man Utd take on Sunderland at home in the league this weekend, with Martial hoping to add to his tally and take United top of the table.
