Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has painted a grim picture of Anthony Martial's fitness after the Man United star picked a knee injury during international duty.

Martial was forced off with a knee problem during France's 2-0 win over Kazakhstan last weekend, ruling him out of United's Premier League meeting with Brighton on Sunday, April 4.

The striker was able to play during the fixture briefly before he was eventually substituted.

He went on to miss France's midweek clash with Bosnia-Herzegovina and ultimately the Brighton tie.

At the time, France head coach Didier Deschamps downplayed the severity of the knee injury, insisting it was not serious.

However, Solskjaer has come out to reveal Martial may not return before the end of the ongoing season.
