Anthony Martial will not be involved vs Tottenham Hotspur, as the Frenchman still isn’t fit.

Manchester United’s season has been injury hit from day one. It has undoubtedly made Erik ten Hag’s job infinitely more difficult, though the Dutch gaffer will continue to persist without moaning too much. That’s just the nature of the man.

No doubt behind the scenes he’s incredibly frustrated with how it’s panning out. The games will now start to come thick and fast during the second half of the season, despite the fact that there is now no European football on the table.

Ahead of the Tottenham Hotspur game tomorrow, Ten Hag has confirmed that one United player is still not fit; Anthony Martial.

The Frenchman is still in ‘medical treatment’ that he has to recover from, though Ten Hag seemed to hint that some of the blame lays on Martial’s door, too.

Check out what the gaffer had to say when asked about Martial directly:

“He’s (Martial) not fit. So, he’s not okay. We want all the players to be fit and prepared for the game. In this moment, he is not. We have to make him fit. It’s his job as well to get ready for the next game, but in this moment he isn’t. He is in medical treatment, and he has to recover.” Ten Hag is quoted as saying by

I cannot help but feel there’s more going on than meets the eye. Perhaps, and I’m just speculating here, it’s transfer related.

There’s a possibility that Martial could depart during this month’s window, while no doubt several clubs would be keen to take a chance on a man who was once talked up as being one of the best talents in the business.

He’s currently not a regular starter for United and there can be no doubt Martial will be considering his future. His current contract expires this summer and I’d be surprised if the club decide to offer him another big-money deal at this stage. He just hasn’t been good enough.
