BREAKING: Big Blow For Man Utd As First Team Striker Suffered An Injury In Training, With Garnacho In The Line To Start.
Manchester United will face Brighton on the 7th August for their first ever premier league game under the management of Erik ten Hag, but the Dutch manager will make his selection without Anthony Martial.
It’s a big blow for the manager ahead of the game, but it was reported that the French forward will be available for selection against Brentford.
Anthony Martial set to miss Manchester United’s opening Premier League match after picking up hamstring injury.
It is hoped Anthony Martial may return for the trip to Brentford on August 13.
If he is unable to recover by then his next chance to feature would come against Liverpool on August 22, according to lauriewhitwell.
Cristiano Ronaldo failed to play a single pre season game under Erik ten Hag due to personal reasons and he didn’t train well under the manager.
He made a return against Rayo Vallecano on Sunday, but the manager claimed that he needs a lot of work to do before he can be available for the game against Brighton.
Alejandro Garnacho who has been working with the manager since his first day in charge, could make his premier league debut under the manager.
He had a good game against Rayo Vallecano and the manager was impressed. He could start from the left flank while Marcus Rashford start from the center.
Manchester United may have to “go back to go forwards” this year and rely on Anthony Martial to defend fugitive five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo.
Despite early reports that he would be sold, Martial will stay at Old Trafford for this season. Despite having trouble making an impression while on loan with Sevilla last season, he scored three goals during the preseason trip and was generally a bright spot for Erik ten Hag in attack.
In the meantime, Ronaldo has returned to Old Trafford despite having stated his wish to depart. But will trusting in the revitalized Frenchman benefit United in the short term?
