Jose Mourinho has confirmed Anthony Martial will miss Manchester United’s game against FC Rostov on Thursday through injury.
Martial didn’t play against Chelsea on Monday night due to injury and hasn’t been able to overcome it in time to face FC Rostov in the Europa League.
Speaking about Martial in his pre-match press conference, Mourinho said: “He was injured for Chelsea match. He is out of my mind. Same players we had in last match, plus Ibrahimovic.”

With Martial still out injured, Mourinho may choose to use Ashley Young on the left wing like he did against Chelsea but Marcus Rashford could also play there as Zlatan Ibrahimovic will return up front.
United do have some injury troubles at the problem in attack but with the squad depth we’ve got we should be able to cope for FC Rostov game. Hopefully Martial will be fit to return for the game against Middlesbrough at the weekend.
