Lingard and Martial F365

Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expects to be without both Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial for at least a fortnight.

Lingard was substituted just before half-time in the Champions League defeat to Paris St Germain in midweek with a hamstring injury while Martial‘s groin complaint saw him withdrawn before the start of the second half.

Solskjaer said: “I think they’ll be out for two to three weeks, looking at it now.”

The news is a huge blow for United, who travel to Chelsea for an FA Cup fifth round clash on Monday before welcoming Premier League title challengers Liverpool to Old Trafford next weekend.

On the week ahead, Solskjaer added: “Great week. You don’t panic because you’ve lost a game, you don’t change everything, doesn’t change the mindset at all, we need to keep working the way we play football.

“We want to go down to Chelsea, we want to have Liverpool here and impose ourselves on those games and there are quite a few other teams with injuries so you have to adapt to that.”
