Manchester United striker Martial out of Arsenal clash

Manchester United striker Anthony Martial is set to miss Sunday’s clash with Arsenal.

Martial pulled up with a hamstring problem in the warm-up ahead of their Europa League tie against Midtjylland, though United still managed to win 5-1 and 6-3 on aggregate to reach the last 16.

Louis van Gaal insists Martial’s injury is ‘not heavy’ but the manager is set to sideline the striker as a precaution as they look to avoid a tear or strain which could rule him out for even longer.

It would be risky with a lot riding on Sunday’s showdown at Old Trafford as United fight for Champions League qualification and Arsenal push for the Premier League title.
