Manchester United's France forward Anthony Martial could miss the rest of the season because of a knee injury sustained on international duty, the Premier League club said on Sunday.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed the news before his side's clash with Brighton & Hove Albion at Old Trafford.
"Unfortunately, he sprained his knee with France," Solskjaer said. "It's always when they go away on internationals... you can keep your fingers crossed and hope they come back fit.
