Spurs v Manchester United Match in Pictures

Anthony Martial’s wife has hit back at claims her husband was injured after he was again left out of Manchester United’s matchday squad.

The Frenchman’s last appearance came back at the beginning of October when he scored in the draw with Everton at Old Trafford.

Martial has since been left out by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and was again overlooked for the Tottenham trip.

The United boss suggests the striker was edging towards a return following his time out, but his wife Melanie claims the former Monaco man has been fit and available for selection.

She was asked by a fan of Instagram if Martial was injured and replied: “Anthony has never been injured. He only had food poisoning two weeks ago.”

Melanie also posted a picture on Saturday of the United forward on an exercise bike with a cryptic post that read: “Never give up”.

Anthony Martial’s wife has taken aim at claims the Man Utd star was injured

Martial has only played twice in the league with a further three appearances coming from the bench.

The Frenchman is battling for a start with a host of other players after United’s summer of recruitment.

Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho bolstered an attacking line that already featured Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood, Edinson Cavani and Jesse Lingard.

It led to rumours of Martial leaving the red half of Manchester.

Solskjaer though was adamant, after a difficult season, that the 25-year-old would come good.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if other teams targeted Anthony because he is a very good player,” Solskjaer said in Augu

“I have no plans whatsoever for him to play against us. Anthony has come back strong and hungry, with the determination to prove his fitness and his quality.

“Last season was a difficult and disappointing one for him and you can see that little bit of grit between his teeth again.

“He is up for the challenge, he is Man United player and we are happy to have him. He has proven doubters wrong so many times.”

United without Martial have been able to get back to winning ways against an out of form Tottenham side.

Solskjaer opted to name a very defensive line-up with the likes of Rashford, Greenwood and Sancho all left on the bench.

United were in desperate need of a result after last week’s Liverpool mauling.

‘It is a little bit last throw of the dice, they’ve been absolutely disgraceful defensively over the last couple weeks,” said Gary Neville.

“This is one of the most defensive Man Utd teams I think I’ve ever seen,”

“It’s a poor reflection on the more talented players in the squad that he can’t trust them to do work without the ball.”
