Manchester United suffer Anthony Martial injury blow

Manchester United have been handed yet another injury blow after Anthony Martial pulled out of training on Wednesday evening. 

The Red Devils were preparing for the second leg of Europa League last-32 clash against Club Brugge, and the Frenchman was expected to lead the lines at Old Trafford. 

He, however, pulled out of training with some discomfort, and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed before the match that he did not know when the striker will be back. 

"He didn't feel right after training. He walked off. He is injured. Hopefully, it won't be too bad. I don't know how long it will be," said Solskjaer ahead of the Brugge clash. 

New signing Odion Ighalo took his place in the starting lineup against the Belgian side and will be expected to continue in the coming games until at least the Frenchman is back. 

His absence will be a major concern for the Norwegian, considering Marcus Rashford is still some way off in his journey to full recovery following a back injury. 

Martial has scored in the last three consecutive matches for United, and his latest injury is a huge blow. 

Solskjaer will, however, be pleased to have Mason Greenwood fully fit to shoulder striking responsibilities.
