Man United updates: Martial’s potential injury blow ahead of Liverpool & Bruno Fernandes close to suspension

Man United go top

Manchester United were in Premier League action on Tuesday evening.

The Red Devils faced a trip to Turf Moor to take on Sean Dyche’s Burnley.

United headed into the tie in fine form, in the knowledge that anything other than a defeat versus the Clarets would guide them to the English top-flight summit.

And though United weren’t overly convincing over the 90 minutes, they eventually came away with a crucial 1-0 win, sending them three points clear of 2nd-placed Liverpool ahead of the showdown between the clubs this coming weekend.

Martial & Fernandes updates

Ahead of their meeting with the champions, though, some less than positive updates have emerged surrounding the Red Devils.

Anthony Martial was hauled off in injury-time vs Burnley, and appeared to be limping somewhat.

The Daily Star have since speculated that the Frenchman could have picked up a hamstring issue.

If this is indeed the case, then there is of course a serious chance that Martial will not be fit enough to face Liverpool.

Elsewhere, it has also been revealed that United are at risk of losing three players to suspension.

As per the official Fantasy Premier League account, should any of Bruno Fernandes, Harry Maguire or Luke Shaw pick up a yellow card in one of United’s next two league outings, then they will be punished with a one-game ban:
