He will now be a doubt for United’s clash against Brighton on Sunday.

But the French boss is adamant his injury isn’t serious putting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s fears at ease.

He said: “Anthony has a small issue on his knee. Nothing is decided yet.

“He won’t be taking part in the training session a bit later. 

“Anything serious has been dismissed. We’ve run some tests, but there’s still the pain, and having travelled as long as we have, that hasn’t helped.”

Martial will return to Manchester today and will be assessed by club physios.

His absence could leave Solskjaer short of options in attack with Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood struggling for fitness.

Rashford missed England’s World Cup qualifiers with an ankle injury while Greenwood was sent home from the Under-21 squad with an issue.

After hosting Brighton, United then face Granada in the Europa League before a tough trip to Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham.
