Solskjaer hopeful key attacker will be fit for Wolves away: report

Manchester United returned to winning ways yesterday, thanks to an eventual match-winning goal from Anthony Martial.

It was great to see the Frenchman back amongst the goals after an injury absence and you get the feeling that he’ll only get better as he works towards full fitness.

Unfortunately, though, it seems as though the attacker is still struggling. After the 2-1 win at home to Watford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that Martial actually had to be subbed off due to another injury issue – although he’s hopeful the youngster will be ready to go when United play Wolverhampton Wanderers.

“I don’t know,” Solskjaer responded when asked about Martial’s injury, according to the Manchester Evening News. “Hopefully he can be available for Tuesday. He got a bad knock. We’ll check him on Monday morning, probably.”

As we know all too well, Wolves away is an extremely difficult fixture. However, you’d think that Solskjaer would have learned at least something from our loss there not too long ago.

Losing Martial for the game makes things trickier, particularly as Romelu Lukaku isn’t fully fit as he recovers from a foot problem. It may mean that Rashford, who is struggling himself, starts as the lone striker with the likes of Jesse Lingard and Juan Mata backing him up.

I’d like to think that Martial is a tough cookie and he’ll put himself through the pain barrier, so hopefully, Solskjaer can call upon him as a substitute at the very least.
