Manchester United: Solskjaer unsure of the extent of Martial's injury

The Frenchman was substituted off in Saturday's win over Watford and could possibly miss Tuesday's crunchy encounter with Wolves.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has provided an update on Anthony Martial's injury following Saturday's Premier League meeting with Watford. The Norwegian manager says he is hopeful the Frenchman will be ready for Tuesday's encounter with Wolves although admitting to being in the dark about the extent of his injury.

After withdrawing from the French national team as a result of an injury, Martial was handed a starting berth against the Hornets. The winger repaid his manager's faith by scoring in his side's 2-1 win. However, the 23-year-old could not last the entirety of the game as he picked up a knock in the 77th minute and was subsequently replaced with Marcos Rojo.

A race to be fit for Tuesday's clash with Wolves is now on for the ex-Monaco starlet although his manager remains optimistic that he will possibly recover on time for the test. Addressing the media after the Red Devils' triumph, Solskjaer said: "I don't know [how injured Martial is]. Hopefully he can be available for Tuesday.

"He got a bad knock. We'll check him on Monday morning, probably."

The former Manchester United star also gave a candid assessment of his side's performance on the day by admitting that it was below par.

"In the first 20 minutes we started so slow and sloppy and you could see we've had players out with injury and the international break.

"We've not been able to train them that much, so it's one of those first games after an international break that you look forward to but know there might be a potential banana skin, because Watford are a good side.

"They didn't have that many players away and I think they deserved to take the lead.

"But after we scored, for the rest of the first half we played some great counter-attacking stuff (and) defended well.

"We had to because they were dominant but Chris (Smalling) and Jonah (Phil Jones) especially were fantastic, (they) kept us in it.

"In the second half we started sloppier but at 2-0 we were in control until they scored and then anything can happen, but three points is all you can get."
