When Manchester United expect Anthony Martial back from injury

Manchester United received an early injury blow after Anthony Martial has been ruled out of the game against Brighton and Hove Albion due to an injury but when will the forward return back to action?

Man United will kick off their new season with a game against Brighton at Old Trafford on Sunday and Erik ten Hag’s chances of getting off to a bright start might have taken a wrong turn.

The Dutchman had planned to start Martial upfront alongside Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho, thanks to his superb pre-season form, but the reports about the Frenchman mean Ten Hag would be forced to make a slight change on his attacking line.

Cristiano Ronaldo is obviously not fit enough to start this weekend and his performance against Rayo Vallecano last weekend wasn’t close to the standard Erik ten Hag wants from his attackers.

Alejandro Garnacho impressed against Rayo and many are touting the youngster to start at left-wing while Marcus Rashford replaces Martial at centre-forward, with Sancho maintaining his right-wing.

Although it is not clear when Manchester United will expect Anthony Martial back in the squad, The Athletic report that the former Monaco forward could be in contention to feature against Brentford next weekend.

Speaking of Garnacho, the Argentine received impressive remarks from Erik ten Hag after his solid performance against Rayo Vallecano.

United ended their pre-season without a win in their last three friendlies but Erik ten Hag and his boys are hoping to get their season off to a perfect start.

Anthony Martial featured against Atletico Madrid last Saturday but came off early in the second half due to a knock.
