Solskjaer confirms Man Utd injury blow as Cavani and Martial forced off in West Ham win


The duo limped out of Saturday's game at London Stadium, though their replacements played a huge role in the Red Devils' victory

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial both picked up muscle injuries during Saturday’s 3-1 win at West Ham.

Cavani, who scored twice as a substitute against Southampton last weekend, retained his place in the side after starting against Paris Saint-Germain in midweek, but did not come out for the second-half at London Stadium. Martial did make it onto the pitch for the second period but was replaced by Juan Mata after 62 minutes.

Bruno Fernandes was also introduced for the second-half having been surprisingly named on the bench by Solskjaer, who said the Portuguese needed a rest because of the rough treatment he had received from opponents in recent weeks.
