Anthony Martial was a late withdrawal from the Manchester United team for Thursday’s Europa League last-32 second leg against FC Midtjylland at Old Trafford.

United confirmed via Twitter just before kick-off that forward Martial had pulled out of the first XI having sustained an injury in the warm-up.

His replacement was 18-year-old Marcus Rashford, making his first-team debut. The youngster scored twice in a 5-1 home victory.

The club gave no details of Martial’s problem, but it appeared to be a hamstring issue. The Frenchman joins what is already a lengthy list of United players unavailable through injury, including captain Wayne Rooney.
