Manchester United star missing from squad for Ole Gunnar Solsjaer’s first home game

Manchester United are set to play at home today against Huddersfield. It will be new interim boss’ Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s second game after 5-1 win against Cardiff City on Saturday but first one Old Trafford.

Romelu Lukaku is out of today’s match after being granted compassionate leave and Martial was expected to start against the Terries.

However, Martial was not present as the United squad made their way to the training ground on Friday.

Martial’s absence will be a blow for Solskjaer, but it could hand an opportunity to Juan Mata or Andreas Pereira.

United are eight points outside of the top four in the table of standings.
