Martial & Lingard to spend 3 Weeks on sidelines.

Manchester United Medical team has confirmed that Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard will miss 3 weeks of football action after suffering an injury in the Champions league game against PSG on Tuesday.

Both players are to miss games against Chelsea and title contenders Liverpool on February 24.

One possible replacement named was striker Mason Greenwood but the 17-year-old is also injured, preventing him from making his first-team debut in their stead.

“I think they’ll be out for two-to-three weeks,” Solskjaer said of Lingard and Martial.

“Then, you’re looking at young players, Mason Greenwood, it’s your time to step in, and he’s injured, unfortunately, out for a couple of weeks as well.

“Sometimes that’s how the luck goes but Mason will get his chance.”

Lingard was forced out of the 2-0 defeat to PSG late in the first half and was replaced by a relatively ineffective Alexis Sanchez.
