Anthony Martial did not travel with Manchester United to Austria for their Europa League clash as the player injured himself in a collision with the goalposts in the Manchester Derby.
Odion Ighalo is set to replace Martial in the starting line-up in their behind-closed-doors match against LASK Linz.
“Anthony hurt himself when he slid into the post,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer explained. “So he’s not ready for this game, hopefully, he can be ready for Sunday.“
Paul Pogba was not present for the open training session at United’s Carrington complex on Wednesday morning and has been sidelined for 11 weeks after undergoing ankle surgery.
Solskjaer claimed Pogba would be back in full training soon. “Paul is getting closer but today he wasn’t with the team. He hasn’t trained fully with the team yet so by next week he’ll be ready.”
