Manchester United star Anthony Martial suffered a knee injury on international duty with France handing a fresh injury concern to the Red Devils.
The second-placed team in the Premier League table has been handed an injury concern over Anthony Martial. The Frenchman limped off against Kazakhstan. Martial was handed a starting berth by Didier Deschamps in Les Bleus’ second World Cup Qualifying match on Sunday.
However, the 25-year-old was forced off with a knee problem in the second period after falling awkwardly under a challenge inside the penalty area.
The Manchester United star received lengthy treatment and continued for five minutes as he tried to shake off the knock, before eventually being replaced by Kylian Mbappe. The injury will concern Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as United prepares to face Brighton & Hove Albion after the international break.

Meanwhile, Anthony Martial is unlikely to be available for France when they face Bosnia and Herzegovina on Wednesday.
This is particularly worrying for the Red Devils as the forward is only recently back from a hip injury sustained during United’s first leg Europa League tie against AC Milan!
Get well soon, Martial!
