Manchester United striker Anthony Martial injured days ahead of Arsenal clash

Manchester United striker pulled out in the warm up.

Manchester United's injury crisis continues, with Anthony Martial the latest victim.

The Red Devils striker was due to start against FC Midtjylland in the Europa League this evening, but pulled out after getting injured in the warm up.

With United needing a win to go through it is unlikely to be a precautionary measure, with teenager Marcus Rashford thrown in to make his first ever appearance for the club.

The timing is particularly poor for United with a Premier League clash against Arsenal coming up this Sunday, which fortunately they are at home for.

Yet home advantage is negated by a slew of injured ahead of a match against a team who beat them 3-0 earlier this season.

Wayne Rooney, Luke Shaw, David de Gea, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Matteo Darmian are among the first team stars currently out injured, and United will have to hope Martial is able to make a swift recovery.
