Manchester United give Anthony Martial injury update – Ghana Latest Football News, Live Scores, Results –

  • October 10, 2022

Manchester United will assess Anthony Martial today after he sustained a third injury in as many months.

United manager Erik ten Hag selected Martial for his first Premier League start in over a year at Everton but he ended his warm-up early. The 26-year-old still lined up and appeared to be in discomfort before he eventually came off in the 29th minute for Cristiano Ronaldo.
Martial assisted Antony’s equaliser in the 15th minute but the striker has not completed 90 minutes for United since September 2021.
“I have to see,” Ten Hag said. “I cannot tell what it is, how serious it is, let’s wait the first 24 hours [to see] how serious it is and then I can give an answer.
“Everyone has to take responsibility and Martial also took his responsibility by giving the assist on the first goal.”
Martial sustained a hamstring strain in the 1-0 friendly defeat to Atletico Madrid on July 30 and was sidelined for three weeks. He returned for the second-half against Liverpool on August 22 and trained later that week but was out again for more than five weeks with an Achilles injury.
In his four appearances this term, Martial has scored three goals and provided two assists, having enjoyed a productive pre-season as United’s main striker.
Ten Hag deliberately eased Martial back into the team, bringing him on at Manchester City and Omonia Nicosia, but the forward’s brittleness is of mounting concern to United..
Martial last managed 90 minutes in the Premier League in United’s 2-1 defeat to Sheffield United in January 2021.
