Manchester United have had a serious injury problem over the last couple of months, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s task made all-the-harder due to various key players being sidelined.
This international break actually came at a good time for the 20-time Premier League champions as it gave the club a fortnight to try and get players back fit for the huge game against Liverpool.
After a story we covered yesterday in which it was claimed that a key trio of Reds could return for the Old Trafford clash this Sunday, we’ve been given some more positive injury news. This time in regards to Anthony Martial.
The article comes from Sky Sports, who state that the 23-year-old United star is expected to make his training return this week and he has a chance of playing a part in the game against our Merseyside rivals too.
It goes without saying that Solskjaer and United need all the help they can get. This squad is super-low on confidence right now while also looking thin on the ground in terms of numbers.
Getting some key players back up to speed and fully fit before the hectic winter schedule could be vital as United look to turn their season around. Who knows, this could well be the all-important moment in the 2019/20 term.
