    Manchester United Striker Anthony Martial to Sit Out on FA Cup Final Against City

    Manchester United’s Anthony Martial to miss FA Cup Final with hamstring injury

    In a major blow for Manchester United, forward Anthony Martial will be unable to play in the upcoming FA Cup final against Manchester City due to a hamstring injury. The French international picked up the injury during Sunday’s match against Fulham at Old Trafford and tests have confirmed that it is a muscle tear.

    This news comes as a big setback for United who were hoping that their star striker would help them secure another domestic title after winning the League Cup earlier this year. A win over City on Saturday would also deny them of matching Sir Alex Ferguson’s treble-winning side of 1999.

    Martial’s Injury-Plagued Season:

    The absence of Martial from the final is not entirely surprising given his injury record this season. Despite scoring six goals and providing two assists in twenty-one Premier League appearances, he has missed several matches throughout the campaign due to various injuries.

    However, United fans may take solace from recent reports concerning winger Antony. There had been concerns over whether the Brazilian would be fit enough to feature in Saturday’s game following an ankle injury sustained during their victory against Chelsea last week. But manager Erik ten Hag confirms that there is hope yet for Antony who will “probably” recover just in time for the final.

    Possible Impact on Team Dynamics:

    Anthony Martial will undoubtedly be sorely missed by his teammates having played an important role throughout much of this season. It remains unclear how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer intends to restructure his team without him come Saturday and how it could impact their performance on such an important day in English football.
