BIG BLOW

Lingard was forced off right on the stroke of half-time, while Martial was replaced at the beginning of the second-half

Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard went off injured on the stroke of half-time during the Red Devils’ Champions League match at home to Paris Saint-Germain.

Lingard was replaced by the much-maligned Alexis Sanchez after picking up a hamstring injury in the closing stages of the first-half.

Meanwhile, things got worse for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he was forced to take off United striker Anthony Martial, who was struggling at points with a knock before Lingard picked up his injury. Juan Mata replaced the Frenchman.

It’s not clear what the extent of Lingard and Matrial’s injuries are but it is an untimely one not just because United are losing key players in an important game.

United are entering a tricky run of fixtures, travelling to Chelsea in the 5th round of the FA Cup next Monday before playing host to Liverpool in the Premier League the following Sunday.

The first leg in the last-16 match has been a tight game so far, but PSG have the lead thanks to Presnel Kimpembe’s goal early in the second-half.
