After a drab opening half, Daley Blind shot into the top corner from 16 yards as Juan Mata squared a free kick.
Ander Herrera doubled the lead from the penalty spot, before Christian Benteke’s spectacular overhead kick pulled a goal back for the visitors.
Martial, a £36m signing, coolly finished after beating Martin Skrtel.
