Anthony Martial is set to miss Manchester United’s crucial Premier League clash against West Ham United on Tuesday.
The French international was pulled up whilst warming up prior to United’s 1-0 win over Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday afternoon. Further reports have confirmed that the 20-year-old has injured his hamstring, and will not only miss the game against West Ham, but is also a doubt for Red Devils’ final league game against Bournemouth on Sunday.
Martial’s injury comes as a major blow for the English giants, as they need to win both their remaining league games to secure the 4th spot in the league table and qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League.
The 20-year-old attacker has been United’s shining ray of hope in a below-average season, as is the club’s joint top-scorer with 14 goals alongside captain Wayne Rooney (as per the club’s website), despite being deployed on the left flank for a majority of the games.
