Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has confirmed he has been dealt a fresh injury blow ahead of Wednesday’s Premier League trip to Crystal Palace. And the Red Devils boss has revealed his plan for new signing Wout Weghorst’s debut after joining on a short loan from Burnley
United travel to Selhurst Park searching for a 10th successive win, riding the momentum from Saturday’s sensational 2-1 derby victory against Manchester City. Anthony Martial was a doubt heading into the clash but started at Old Trafford before Ten Hag withdrew him at half-time after not looking 100 per cent
And the Dutchman has since confirmed that Martial wasn’t fully fit and was ‘complaining’ about an injury after the first half, leading to his withdrawal. “I hoped to avoid that he was getting injured, but he was complaining.” Ten Hag told reporters.”That’s why he also didn’t train in the week and was a question mark [for the derby].
“We decided – and he decided as well – to start. He begged to start. I knew the start would be so important in this game, and he is really good at pressing, and he is a really big element in our pressing.
