Manchester United’s injury crisis has worsened further, as Anthony Martial, one of the few bright spots for the Red Devils this season, got injured in the warm-up, just moments before kick-off.
Anthony Martial came out to do the first part of the warm-up at Old Trafford, but when the team moved on to attacking drills, the Frenchman was nowhere to be seen.

Then, moments later, Marcus Rashford sprinted down the tunnel and soon returned to take part with his teammates, replacing Martial in the line-up and all-set to make his full Manchester United debut in what is a crucial game for Louis van Gaal and the club.
Some reports suggest Anthony Martial could also miss Arsenal clash on Sunday.
With Martial out for four weeks any slim hope of top 4 is gone. It really is tonight or nothing. #MUFC
