Man Utd facing injury blow ahead of Irons clash

Manchester United could be without Anthony Martial when they take on the Hammers this weekend.

The two sides are set to go head-to-head on Sunday evening in the 19:15 kick off.

United were in action in midweek, drawing 1-1 with AC Milan in the Europa League, and Martial sustained a hip injury in the game.

The France international now faces a scan to determine the extent of the damage, placing his fitness firmly in doubt.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, as quoted by The Independent, confirmed that Martial sustained a “whack”, and “couldn’t go on.”

Martial has been central to the way United have played at times this season, playing both through the middle and on the left wing.

He has scored seven goals and laid on eight assists in all competitions, although his recent form in the Premier League has been patchy at best.

He scored a brace against Southampton in February but has not scored a league goal since, with his most recent goal prior to that coming against Aston Villa on New Year’s Day.

  1. After the late and unneccessary tackle that put Oggy out of action, I find it hard to find any sympathy. Karma perhaps?

    • Great observation Mooro. And did Oggy go down screaming and screeching ? No. Just put up with the nastiness and left the field. Karma indeed.
