For the second time this season Manchester United striker Anthony Martial has suffered an injury while warming up prior to a pivotal game.

The first occasion came at Old Trafford in February ahead of United’s Europa league tie with FC Midtjylland, though the net result of that incident was the unexpected introduction of Marcus Rashford, who scored a brace on the night as the hosts won 5-1.

Unfortunately for the dynamic Martial, a near identical issue has occurred again today. The timing couldn’t be worse as United must beat Norwich to maintain any hope of securing a Champions League spot. In fact,United will be light on firepower at Carrow Road as Rashford has been rested for the day, so Ander Hererra has been drafted in for Martial.
