Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Everton over the weekend has put many supporters in a bad mood ahead of yet another two-week-long international break.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his side failed to get back to winning ways in the Premier League, after successfully doing so in the Champions League, winning against Villarreal through a last-minute winner from Cristiano Ronaldo.
Solskjaer made plenty of changes for the visit of Everton, with Anthony Martial being one of the players called up in place of Paul Pogba, who instead appeared from the bench.
Martial scored and enjoyed his best performance of the season but Solskjaer has now confirmed that the 25-year-old was withdrawn early in the second half due to an injury.
“Great movement, great interlink play,” Solskjaer told the official Manchester United website on Martial’s goal.“Scott [McTominay], Mason [Greenwood], Bruno, Anthony: good finish. Very pleased for him and with him.
“Unfortunately he got a knock and had to come off.”
The extend of his knock wasn’t revealed but the Norwegian boss will be hoping to have him back sooner rather than later. How the injury affects his plans for the international break remains unclear.
Martial was one of three Manchester United players to be called up to the France national squad, with Pogba and Raphael Varane also earning recalls.
