News from the Manchester United team: Anthony Martial will not be at risk against Crystal Palace in the context of an injury crisis


Anthony Martial will not be able to return for Manchester United Wednesday night against Crystal Palace, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team fighting with at least 10 players injured.

Martial is struggling with a problem in the groin since the defeat against Paris Saint-Germain a fortnight ago and, although he is recovering, he is not likely to be put in danger at Selhurst Park.

Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford join the France international after being injured in Sunday's draw against Liverpool.

Nemanja Matic is ruled out after a training injury last week, while Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian and Phil Jones are not available for defense.

"We have not had a session yet, so I do not think there are a lot of positives, no," he said.

"I do not know the list that is supposed to be hurt. Matteo [Darmian] formed the other day, I do not think he will be ready.

"Marcos Rojo will be involved, Rashy, we are still waiting to see how his ankle will respond to treatment, muscle injuries are too early to think about it … that's all.

"Martial is not going to be ready for this one either, we can not risk, so maybe Southampton [on Saturday] but we are not risking another. "

Solskjaer plans to turn to United's youth for cover, but Mason Greenwood, a promising young striker who allegedly played, is also injured.

Angel Gomes, James Garner and Tahith Chong have all been called to United's first team to cover those who are not available.

"Children are joining us today. They will be involved in the team, confirmed Solskjaer. "They have been part of our training for a long time now.

"I'm sure Angel [Gomes]he was successful with the under-17s of England, the 2000s team with [Jadon] Sancho, [Callum] Hudson-Odoi and that [Phil] Foden, he played an important role and clearly showed that if he had a chance, he would do well.

"Jimmy Garner is a Michael Carrick but 20 years younger, I'm sure he'll do well and Chongy will hire people if he comes.

"They are ready, children, it's difficult if you're a defender who comes to 16 or 17 years, but as an attacker, you just express yourself and give your chance. They can win you the match without losing it for you.
