Early team news: Cristiano Ronaldo missing from team training hands Anthony Martial golden chance – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United will travel to Craven Cottage to face Fulham, in the team’s last club appearance before the World Cup break.

Erik ten Hag will be eager to return to winning ways after the last Premier League game ended in defeat at the hands of Aston Villa.

The Red Devils will face a tough test at newly promoted Fulham, currently sitting ninth in the Premier League standings.

Anthony Martial is likely to appear in the starting eleven against Fulham.

Martial started on Thursday against Aston Villa. He led the line well and capped off a brilliant performance with a simple touch goal early in the second half.

Martial’s options to start are enhanced by the fact that his substitute, Cristiano Ronaldo, was not present at the team’s training session yesterday.

Ronaldo missed out on the Aston Villa win through illness and is apparently not ready to feature unless there is a drastic turnaround and he miraculously recovers to be available for selection.

According to The Manchester Evening News, Jadon Sancho and Antony were also not seen with the rest of the team.

United fans will be pleased that Martial can start tomorrow as number nine.

Every time he plays, the team is more fluid and the Frenchman instantly improves those around him.

The 26-year-old’s excellent link-up player, technical ability, speed and finishing are all attributes the team has sorely missed in the period he was sidelined through injury.

Hopefully United can get a result against Fulham and leave supporters with something to hold on to until club football returns.
