Ole Gunnar Solskjaer tells Manchester United injured star to prepare for Arsenal clash

Manchester United have decided to rest Anthony Martial though he could have featured in Champions League match against PSG but the club wanted to ensure he would be fit to face Arsenal on Sunday.

The Frenchman was ruled out of United’s trip to Paris by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the club’s 3-2 win against Southampton on Saturday.

“Martial? No, I don’t think we can risk it,” admits Solskjaer. “He has not been training yet, so I don’t think so”.

The club’s decision indicates Sunday’s clash at the Emirates is perhaps more important as United bid to finish in the top four. Just five points separate Tottenham in third and Chelsea in sixth, meaning United can ill-afford to slip-up given they have perhaps the most difficult run-in.
