Martial picked up an injury during the first round of the Champions League Round of 16 tie against PSG at Old Trafford. The Frenchman picked up a muscle injury and was ruled out for a few weeks. He was substituted at the break by Juan Mata and United lost their tooth in the attack, succumbing to a 0-2 defeat at home.
The Frenchman has since missed five games, which started with the draw at Liverpool, where United picked up 3 more injuries. However, United managed to win four of the five games he was absent from, riding on some incredible man management from their Norwegian manager.
But with the top four race far from over and United still missing quite a few players, the Red Devils had to fight fatigue as well as injuries before the away game at Emirates. As such, Solskjaer’s update comes at a crucial time and could help bring further positivity ahead of the weekend’s game.
The Norwegian was speaking to the press and there was a concern about Eric Bailly, who seemed to pick up a knock in the first half against PSG, and had to be substituted. However, Solskjaer revealed that the Ivorian had recovered.
