Manchester United will be without Anthony Martial for ‘a little while’ after he picked up a fresh injury in Sunday’s 2-2 draw against Aston Villa, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed.

The Frenchman, who has scored three times in the Premier League this season, was subbed off after 82 minutes at the weekend and now misses Wednesday’s clash against Tottenham Hotspur.

Martial missed a chunk of the season at the start of the campaign with a hamstring problem, and Solskjaer says he will be out of action for a spell once again.

Asked about Martial’s absence from the squad to face Spurs, Solskjaer told MUTV: ‘Anthony got a slight injury on Sunday so he’ll be out for a little while.’

There was better news for United, though, with Scott McTominay returning to the starting XI for the visit of Spurs and Solskjaer says it was a no-brainer to put him straight back into the side.

‘We’ve got a couple of injuries. Scott McTominay is back and fit to play. It was an easy decision to get him in,’ he told BBC Sport.

‘Jesse Lingard has been really good in the last few weeks from the bench so we give him a chance.

‘Ashley Young is very important, our club captain. He’s got experience and is vocal in the dressing room. He’s one of our leaders. It’s important to have experience in the big games.

‘We’ve got exciting forwards, hopefully we can create chances for them. I’ve been waiting to see Mason Greenwood in the Premier League – it’s a big stage against a big team but I’m sure he’s ready.’

On the return of Jose Mourinho to Old Trafford, Solskjaer added bluntly: ‘It’s a normal game. He’s not on the pitch, neither am I.’
