The Frenchman had already shortened his warm-up a little before the match of the 10th day of the Premier League, apparently embarrassed by his hip, but still wanted to honor the first start of the season.
On a ball saved by Bruno Fernandes, he quickly passed it on to Antony, who scored his third goal in three league games (1-1, 15th) after Alex Iwobi gave Toffees the advantage from the 5th minute.
Martial, who scored against Omonia Nicosia in the Europa League Conference on Thursday, has 3 goals and 3 assists in only 4 games due to recurring physical failures in all competitions since the beginning of the season.
