Injury update after Manchester United star benched

Anthony Martial was on the Manchester United bench for their Premier League game against Norwich at Carrow Road on Saturday.

The forward was left out of the starting line up with a ‘tight hamstring’ according to BTSport and it is not yet clear if he will be fit to face West Ham in midweek when the two sides meet in their game in hand.

He picked up the injury in the pre-match warm-up and it is thought that the decision to bench him is only a precautionary one.

The injury forced Louis van Gaal to make some quick changes to his match squad, moving Wayne Rooney up front after the decision had been made to rest young Marcus Rashford.

Ander Herrera came into the starting XI in place of the Frenchman.
