(Video) Anthony Martial injury news: Manchester United’s worst fears realised?

Look away now, Manchester United fans!

Reports indicate that Anthony Martial picked up an injury in France’s defeat to England on Tuesday evening and is set for a spell on the sidelines.

The French forward started the friendly fixture, which England won 2-0 following goals from Dele Alli and Wayne Rooney, but was replaced by Antoine Griezmann during the second period.

However, as revealed in this Vine, he left Wembley on crutches and must surely be considered a doubt for United’s upcoming fixtures. The Red Devils travel to Watford on Saturday, before welcoming PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League in midweek.
