Manchester United could be without forward Anthony Martial for the remainder of the season after he was injured on international duty, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says.

Martial, 25, featured for France against Ukraine and Kazakhstan last week before picking up a knee injury.

“Losing Anthony for what might be the rest of the season is very disappointing,” said Solskjaer.

“Reports from France were that it wasn’t serious but it looks a bad one.”

Solskjaer later added on BT Sport that the club “hope to get him back before the end of the season but we’re not sure”.

Martial has scored seven goals for United overall this season but has just three in 19 appearances in 2021.

United are also set to be without centre-back Eric Bailly for what Solskjaer described as “a little while” because he has tested positive for coronavirus while on international duty with Ivory Coast and is yet to return to the country.

Solskjaer’s side face Spanish side Granada in the Europa League quarter-finals on the next two Thursdays, and visit Tottenham next Sunday.
