Anthony Martial misses out on Leicester trip after Manchester United star picks up injury while away with France, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirms

  • An injury picked up on international duty has ruled Anthony Martial out for Utd 
  • The Frenchman went away with Les Bleus for the most recent international break
  • However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that the forward is not fit right now 
  • Martial, 25, scored against Everton but was unavailable for the Leicester game 


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has explained that an injury picked up by Anthony Martial while away on international duty has ruled him out of Man United’s trip to Leicester.

Solskjaer has made five changes from the side that were held 1-1 by Everton before the break, with Cristiano Ronaldo brought back into the line-up having been named on the bench against the Toffees. 

However, Martial’s absence has raised eyebrows, with the Frenchman scoring United’s only goal against Rafa Benitez’s side two weeks ago.

But Solskjaer has revealed that an injury sustained while away with Les Bleus is why the 25-year-old misses out on the trip to the King Power.

‘No, he’s come back from France [duty] not fit so he’s not trained all week,’ Ole told MUTV before kick off. ‘Hopefully we can have him back soon.’

Elsewhere, captain Harry Maguire has returned to the starting line-up after recovering from a calf injury that saw him sidelined in September.

‘Of course, it’s great to have him back as Harry is a big player for us,’ the United boss added. 

‘He came through the session [on Friday] alright and had no reaction to it. He’s done lots of work with the physios and a load of rehab work. There’s no reaction, so he’s ready.’

United have also been boosted by the return of Marcus Rashford, who was named among the substitutes on Saturday having been out all season with a shoulder injury.
