Martial key to Man Utd top four finish – Ten Hag

Manchester United boss, Erik ten Hag has identified Anthony Martial as the player whose fitness issues could cost the Red Devils a place in the top four this season

The Dutchman said it is ‘really difficult’ for his side to finish in the top four this season without Anthony Martial.

A series of injury problems have limited the Frenchman to just two starts and six appearances for Manchester United this season.

Despite this, the Frenchman has scored four goals and provided two assists to show a glimpse of what he can bring to the team.

“Yes, definitely,” ten Hag told a press conference ahead of Sunday’s clash with Fulham.

In the front line, the availability of the players is a concern for us.

“So if he [Martial] can’t be fit it is really difficult to get in the first four.”

Manchester United maintain their fifth place in the Premier League into this weekend’s matches, the last games before the World Cup break.

Anthony Martial missed out on France squad to the World Cup majorly due to his injury problem with Didier Deschamps settling for the likes of Karim Benzema, Kingsley Coman, Ousmane Dembele, Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappe, Christopher Nkunku.
