Anthony Martial will be involved in the weekend’s Manchester derby but Edinson Cavani still remains a doubt, according to Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Red Devils duo were both subbed during the club’s comeback win over West Ham earlier this month and missed the Champions League clash against RB Leipzig.

“Anthony will definitely be involved and Edinson has been on the grass today,” said Solskjaer, when being asked to give an injury update on the United duo.

“But I’m not sure if he’ll make it. Apart from that, we’ve had a couple of days of recovery and we should be ready.”

On the upcoming derby, the manager added: “Starting quickly is one thing and we want to start good.

“We have done well in last few games against City but there are loads of things we can do better.

We got pegged back in the beginning in midweek and they scored from crosses, which was disappointing.

We really wanted to go through but we have to move on. It was a tight group decided by fine margins. Focus has been on this game and Manchester derby. That is the best game you can ask for.”
