Anthony Martial leaves Man Utd training after just 11 minutes due to illness with striker a doubt for PSG clash

ANTHONY MARTIAL was at the Manchester United training ground for just 11 minutes today.

The French forward, 24, missed yesterday’s win at Southampton due to falling ill on Saturday and was forced to stay in the hotel during the match.

He missed Sunday’s win over Southampton due to illness and is reportedly still under the weather

Ole Gunnar Solskaer said yesterday: “Anthony had to stay in the hotel, he got ill overnight and he is down here still.”

And despite reporting at Carrington on Monday morning as preparations begin for Wednesday’s clash with Paris Saint-Germain, he was quickly on his way home again.

Martial was snapped arriving at 9.59am but was pictured at 10.10am heading out.

The Manchester Evening News reported he went straight back because he is still under the weather and therefore not fit to train.

His team-mates Edinson Cavani, Marcus Rashford, Harry Maguire and Jesse Lingard were among those also spotted as well as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ed Woodward, who was chauffeured in.

It means the former Monaco man remains a doubt for the Champions League tie at Old Trafford in midweek.

After Cavani inspired a thrilling 3-2 comeback win at St Mary’s yesterday, Solskjaer will be hoping his good week continues.

Avoiding defeat against Thomas Tuchel’s French champions will secure the Red Devils’ place in the knockout stages of the competition.

However, Solskjaer is sweating on the fitness of his fair share of players.

As well as Martial, David De Gea and Alex Telles are also doubts for Wednesday after being forced off with knocks on the south coast.

Discussing De Gea, who was replaced by Dean Henderson, boss Solskjaer said yesterday: “It’s a knock just above the knee. So we’ll have a scan and check on him tomorrow.

“Hopefully he can be ready for Wednesday but can’t promise anything now.

“Dean came on, very assured, had a couple of half-saves to make but he was tidy and safe with the ball at his feet.”

Meanwhile Luke Shaw, Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay continue their recoveries from injuries and look set to be unavailable.

Lastly, Donny van de Beek faces a race to be ready after getting a nasty swollen ankle following a challenge from Saints skipper James Ward-Prowse.
