Anthony Martial Set To Miss Man United Vs Tottenham Match Due To Injury

Manchester United are still unsure about the fitness of Striker Anthony Martial ahead of Wednesday's Tottenham showdown. According to Sky Sports, Martial was substituted late on in the Aston Villa 2-2 draw with a muscular problem.


The France international has been restricted mostly this season with just 12 appearances so far due to injury problems.

However, he has started United's last six Premier League matches after the 1-1 draw against Liverpool back in October.

His absence would be a huge blow for coach Ole Gunnar Solksjaer who could now move into a 3 man backline formation as used against Liverpool.

Rashford and James could be used as forwards in a 3-5-2 formation which would ensure Axel Tuanzebe, Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire in defence.

After scoring in his first two Premier League matches this season, Martial has only found the net once in recent weeks causing some concerns among fans.


Despite the recent sacking of managers by Premier League clubs, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is not concerned.

"Sometimes you laugh when you read stories about what I've said and stuff," Solskjaer said.

"At least I know the sources everyone is talking about aren't sources, they are just made up, blatant lies."

"It doesn't make me more concerned, I'm just focusing on my job and doing as well as I can. I'm looking at the next game and also looking long term, planning things with the board.

"It is that time of year, it is never nice to see your colleagues lose their jobs. It's now three in a very short space of time. But it doesn't make me anymore concerned that it's December, no.

"I don't think whoever the manager or the opposition team is will change their motivation. They are motivated to do well for Manchester United because they know it is about proving it every time you step onto the pitch that you should be part of this long term."


Manchester United are still yet to get a win in their last three and have won just four of their 14 Premier League games this campaign.
