Manchester United News: Anthony Martial doubtful for Brighton clash

According to news from Daily Mail, Manchester United forward Anthony Martial could be a huge doubt for the Brighton game. The Frenchman suffered an injury while on international duty.

Martial was recalled to the France squad for the WC qualifiers against Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Bosnia and Herzegovina. He came in as a substitute against Ukraine but was afforded the start in the game against Kazakhstan. However, he would last just until the hour mark before going down with an injury.

It seemed as if his studs got stuck on the pitch and damaged his fibula. He has been ruled out of the last game against Bosnia but is also a major doubt for Manchester United’s weekend game against Brighton.

Manchester United’s injury crisis in the forward department has only worsened. Rashford was the first to be ruled out during the international break with Mason Greenwood following suit for England U-21s.

It is still unclear as to when both the Englishmen will return to action and Martial’s injury has done nothing to ease the issue.

All things considered, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be left with Edinson Cavani as the only senior forward. We could end up seeing a much transformed forward line for United, with so many of the first-choice personnel out.

Nonetheless, there is still the likes of Amad Diallo and Shola Shoretire to call upon if needed.
