Ole provides injury update on Martial and Cavani

Manchester United produced another incredible comeback win on the road on Saturday to make it nine straight away Premier League victories.

West Ham United head led 1-0 at half-time at the London Stadium but the scoreline could have been greater but for Pablo Fornals, Sebastian Haller and Jarrod Bowen all missing sitters before the break.

In another Jeckyll and Hyde performance away from home, we looked hopeless in the first half before the introduction of Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford inspired us to victory after the break,

Paul Pogba, Mason Greenwood and Rashford scored in a 13-minute spell in the second half to lead us to a 3-1 victory.

However, the three points that saw us end Saturday in fourth place, three points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea, didn’t come without some negatives.

Edinson Cavani was taken off at half-time and Anthony Martial was forced off just after the hour.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now provided us with an injury update on the attacking duo. And whilst the boss cannot give any confirmation as to how long they will be out until further tests, it sounds like they will both miss the RB Leipzig game on Tuesday. He said:

“Injuries… so it’s unfortunate that sometimes you get muscle injuries and Edi had to come off with an injury, hopefully it’s not too bad.

“We lost him [Anthony Martial] and Edinson. Hopefully [they’re] not too bad but they couldn’t carry on.

“They’re not bad ones hopefully. We’ll do scans on them and hopefully they’ll be available soon.”

“There’s a game already on Tuesday. It’ll probably be [like this] this year. Some games we have to do without players and I’m glad we’ve got the substitutions we have.”

Manchester United travel to RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Tuesday needing to avoid defeat to progress to the knockout stages, rather than dropping into the Europa League.

Saturday’s victory at West Ham makes it four consecutive in the Premier League, putting us within three points of the leaders and with a game in hand.
